Make it a fun St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day isn't a huge family holiday in most houses, but it is fun. Creativity goes a long way when it comes to St. Patrick's Day. Make it fun and remember to always create a childhood memory.

In our house, the leprechaun visits on St. Patrick's Day. He brings the children some small gift. The joy on their faces are enough reward to keep the tradition going. Plus the conversations that arise about the leprechaun are absolutely priceless!

If corn beef is not your or your family's thing, try something else. Try baking a cake in the shape of a four leaf clover. Make green jello or pudding. Serve some four leaf clover pancakes in the morning. Food coloring does the trick no matter what you make.

Crafts on St. Patrick's Day are always fun with young children. Make rainbows, clovers, trails leading to a pot of gold and leprechauns. Clovers are good to make and the children receive good practice cutting out shapes.

Whatever you decide, remember to wear green and put your kids in green. Enjoy yourself and have a safe plus happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
