Decorate the house

Preparing St. Patrick’s Day foods can be another way to celebrate with your family. Create a St. Patrick’s Day menu for dinner- with traditional Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage and a rainbow cake with green icing for dessert!

Bake shamrock shaped sugar cookies and ice them together. Or create homemade shamrock shakes for everyone to enjoy!
Spend a few hours playing St. Patrick’s Day games or activities with your family. Build a leprechaun trap together to catch a leprechaun to guide you to his gold. Leave a trail of chocolate coins to the trap to lure the leprechaun to it. Or create a treasure hunt for your family and search for the leprechaun’s gold at the end of the rainbow together. Hide little bags of chocolate coins throughout your house and yard, creating a scavenger hunt to do as a family. Create Irish instruments together like a bodhran Irish drum, which is a traditional Celtic instruction. Listen to music together that uses a bodhran Irish drum and play together as a family. After a day of family fun, settle in and read books that celebrate the holiday together. Together you can read books about Ireland, leprechauns, or St. Patrick.
St. Patrick’s Day can be about more than just green beer. You and your family can spend a day enjoying family friendly St. Patrick’s Day activities together, no matter what your family enjoys doing.
