St. Patrick's Day Fun!

Looking for some fun and easy ways to create joy this week for St. Patrick's Day?  We have you covered.

Assemble pretzel shapes using traditional pretzels, and stick pretzels onto a parchment lined backing sheet. Then place a Rolo right in the middle.  Bake for 3 minutes at 350 degrees, or just when the Rolo starts to melt.  Take out of the oven and gently press a green M&M in the center!  So easy, so adorable!

Make these fun mint green cookies!   or another favorite are the BYU mint brownies 

If your feeling healthy... you can still enjoy a fun green snack!  Simply dye some ranch green, and enjoy those veggies!

A tradition we have had for 4+ years is making
LEPRECHAUN TRAPS together with our cousins!  Here is what we do;
We bring a green snack to much on and share
Mint Oreos, Guacamole and chips, green deviled eggs, green crapes, green frosted cookies, green Pringles, green boxes of raisins, green wrapper string cheese...

Have a little photo booth with some fun props!

We set out an assortment of fun things to create with.  Markers, crayons, pipe-cleaners, fun st. patricks stickers, strings, beads, gold/green paper, ribbons, popsicles sticks, cups, and random boxes and containers from the recycle bin!

Then the kids get to work!  We just let them go to town and create!  They love it!
Each year the night before St. Patrick's day they set out their traps to catch a leprechaun.  The leperchans always come and leave a mess, some gold, some fun treats, but we have yet to catch one!

Some mornings on March 17th we have green eggs and ham... or simply lucky charms!!  One year my husband wrote each of us a card about how lucky he was to have us in his life.  Love him!!

an easy fruit loop rainbow craft!

use a shamrock cookies cutter, and paint with it!

or just use your hands and create a hand-print shamrock

or whip up some green play-doe for an hour of fun!

Pick something that would bring you and your family joy and do it this week to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
