Creating a festive atmosphere
St. Patrick’s Day is a perfect opportunity to create a festive atmosphere in your home.
There are many ways to do this, from decorating your house with green and white balloons, streamers and signs, to hanging four-leaf clovers everywhere.
You can even craft shamrocks or leprechauns out of construction paper, felt or other materials. You can also create a special lucky charm to hang on the door or walls of your home.
These simple decorations will not only make the kids happy but will make them feel special.
Traditional Irish food and drinks
St. Patrick’s Day is an ideal time to introduce kids to the traditional Irish food and drinks. Combining traditional dishes with fun-filled activities will make the festivity even more enjoyable.
You can start with a classic Irish breakfast, which consists of oatmeal porridge, bacon and eggs, black pudding and soda bread. For dinner, you can opt for Irish stew or Shepherd’s Pie.
To add a bit of sweetness to your celebration, serve Irish cream brownies, cupcakes and apple tart.
As for drinks, you can prepare some Leprechaun juice – a mix of orange juice, pineapple juice and some green food coloring – or you can go for some hard cider.
Activities for the kids
Organize a variety of fun activities to engage the kids in the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.
How about a scavenger hunt with green items like four-leaf clovers or green paper? Or, why not make some Irish-themed crafts such as shamrock wreaths or a leprechaun hat?
You could even organize an Irish dance competition and award prizes to celebrate the winner.
Let the kids get creative and have some fun with face painting or creating their own unique St. Patrick’s Day outfits.
For extra challenge, try having them make their own masks of leprechauns, rainbow and pots of gold!
And don’t forget to include the classic ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ game, with a twist – use green tails instead!
