St. Paddy’s Day Fun for Kids
Holidays in our home are always so much fun. I love to be a little extra when it comes to Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and yes, even St. Paddy’s Day. I am not even going to pretend that I think of all these fun ideas on my own. Over the past several months I have fallen in love with some amazing, creative Instagram accounts. Pinterest had always been my go-to and do not get me wrong I still love to explore that platform. Instagram has been my new spot to find fun things to do! Instagram has inspired all of these St. Paddy’s Day fun for kids ideas.
Take a look and make sure you give them a follow.
We love books in our home and we have a collection of books for about every holiday. Here is a list of some you should get your hands on to create even more St. Paddy’s Day fun.
- How to Catch a Leprechaun
- Pete the Cat: The Great Leprechaun Chase
- The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever
- The Luckiest Leprechaun: A Tail-Wagging Tail of Friendship
This is a fun project you can do just about anything with. I may have had more fun adding all the embellishments to it.
- The Magic Playbook printables
- Whimsically Wonderful printables
- Cardboard from a box
- Any extra embellishments you would like to add!
The Magic Playbook is one of my favorite resources to help plan fun ideas to do with the kiddos. This monthly subscription is worth it and it was loaded with St. Paddy’s Day fun this month including these fun Weather Wands
Rainbow Paper Plates
One of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow is the @mama.jots. She always shares the easiest and most creative paper plate craft including this fun rainbow. You can follow the whole tutorial here.
These fun Rainbow Mobile’s are fun to create and make for a fun St. Paddy’s Day decoration. The printable and tutorial are all from The Magic Playbook.
Fruit Loop Necklaces
How super fun and easy is this? Grab some string and fruit loops to make necklaces. The fun St. Paddy’s Day printables are from The Magic Playbook.
One of my favorite things to do is add a little fun to our weekend breakfasts. Have you discovered Dash kitchen appliances? They have been releasing the cutest mini waffle makers each season and we snatched the heart one for Valentine’s Day. It ended up working perfectly for St. Paddy’s Day too! Make 3 hearts and shape them into a shamrock. Add a little whipped cream and Lucky Charms to make it extra.
If you do not have a heart waffle maker, you can make heart-shaped pancakes and create the same shamrock.
Rainbow Sheet Pan Pancakes
Bring on all things rainbows! My kids died when they saw this pan of sheet pan pancakes colored rainbow. Sheet pan pancakes are one of the easiest breakfast items I love to make. Mix up your favorite pancake mix (we always have a huge box of Kodiak Cakes on hand), pour it into a greased sheet pan, then drop colored dye in rows. Use a knife to mix each section carefully. Bake according to the pancake mix directions.
To make it extra we topped it with whipped cream and Fruit Loops!
If you love to decorate for the holiday or want to purchase some fun supplies to celebrate. Check out some of my favorite small shops on Instagram.
One of my favorite party shops to shop for every holiday. I snagged a fun rainbow pinata and festive tattoos. You will always find something!
Offers tons of free and festive printables to use for decor and activities at home.
Another super fun, small shop! I purchased her Leprechaun Trap kit to do with the kids. They are going to love it.
Another fun shop that sells the sweetest shirts for kids, moms, and other fun accessories. Definitely give her a follow!
I have mentioned it a ton already, but we LOVE The Magic Playbook. Not only do they provide so many fun activities, but they also provide fun pennant flags and other fun decor for the holiday too!
