This month is full of celebrations for us. We've got a bunch of birthdays in the family, and of course, St. Patrick's Day and Easter are coming up. This year, St. Patrick's Day falls on a day that I have my kids, so I am gearing up for our celebration for the holiday!
You saw our Celebrating Valentine's Day, and our St. Patrick's Day is following a similar formula. Easy is the key for us - or should I say for me! If it takes too much work, it will get pushed out the way to make time for things like homework and errands and snuggling. All very important, but this can totally be worked in without too much struggle!
Because we had a school holiday in February, we actually already did one of the planned holiday activities - we made Shamrock Pretzel Pops! I'll tell you more about that in a later post, though - complete with a recipe for you to try, too!
For now, I'd just like to share the activities I am planning to do with the kids on St. Patrick's Day itself. We don't usually do too much for this holiday. I will be honest and tell you the main reason is because I've never planned it well enough. It has always seemed to sneak up on me between all the family birthdays. Sad, but true. This year, I am on it like white on rice!
To plan for this, I have gotten some chocolate gold coins to give to the kids as a little present. But I am going to make them work for it - enter the joy of Pinterest printables! Here are the ones we will be using this year:
-This scavenger hunt from Happy Home Fairy:
-This maze from Honey & Lime:
-This word search from Cook. Craft. Love.:
You can go to my St. Patrick's Day board at Pinterest to find more of these, as well as other crafts, coloring pages, and crossword puzzles. I'd love to hear what you have planned to celebrate this holiday with your children. Do you have family traditions that you do every year? Leave a comment below, and have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!
