St. Patrick’s Day Fun

After such a long winter, I always get a little excited about Saint Patrick’s Day. It breaks things up and gives an excuse to let loose and have fun. There are always some fun St. Paddy’s food options to partake in, and with so much green to be seen, it serves as a good reminder that spring is near!

This collection of projects has so many cute craft ideas to compliment the tasty food and good cheer that comes with the holiday! I think my favourite is the Pot of Gold Wreath. I know it would be so cute on my front door! I am going to make the green roses with my daughter; I know she will love this science project with pretty results. 

Brief History Of St. Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is a jolly day filled with pots of gold, shamrocks, and leprechauns! But did you know the holiday initially began as a religious feast day for the Irish patron saint, Saint Patrick? Saint Patrick is wildly recognized for ministering Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. Today, it’s become an international festival held on March 17th celebrating the Irish culture, primarily consisting of wearing green, parades, and drinking (for adults!).

  1. Such a great compilation! I have a St Patty’s baby (who is almost 10!). I am sure we can find a few items to make here!

  2. Thanks for the ideas. I really like the St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Finger Play Gloves and the Leprechaun Hats Craft . With St. Patrick’s day just a couple of weeks away this would be the perfect time for me to try these.
