  1. The handprint rainbow is definitely gonna happen here! We just opened up my son's massive hotwheels collection so my girl can have a little fun with them....maybe it's time for a rainbow race!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Sounds like fun! :) I'm glad you could find some ideas you can use this year! :)

    2. That Leprechaun Beard is priceless too! lol

  2. Wow! You have a lot of great ideas here. we never really celebrate St Patrick's Day in our house.

    1. We don't do anything huge for it either, but I do like to throw in something fun - even if it's just adding food colouring to some pancakes! ;)

  3. What a great list! I really like the green pepper paint craft. Thank you so much for putting this together.

    1. Thanks Randa! It was fun to find all of these ideas! :)

  4. These are great ideas!!! Thanks. I'll have to browse through them and maybe we'll actually celebrate here this year!

    1. Even doing one or two of them is a great way to make some fun memories! :)

  5. What a great list of some many goodies! We have a few traditions we do here, that include that Lime Sherbert punch. I would love to make leprechaun playdough with the kids, they'd have a ball. I'll have to check out the other fun things so we all have lots of fun! Thanks!

    1. You're welcome! Hope you have lots of fun this year! :)

  6. What an amazing list!!! I'm thrilled that I won't need to do any searching for activities or food ideas this year; I'll just keep coming back to this post. Thanks for sharing! :)

  7. Totally LOVE all the St-Patrick's Day ideas!! I really like that you also shared a photo of each project! I'm going to show this to my daughters and see if they would like to make any of these. (They'll probably give me a long list!)

  8. I would love to make the yummy cake. Actually there are a few crafts that look fabulous! Thanks for the list

  9. We don't do anything huge for it,but I am glad i seen this now and have lots of time to prepare because you have so many fun things here...think I might go big this year
