Make this year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations fun for the whole family with Irish songs, dancing and other fun ideas for kids.
Do you have little leprechauns in the house? It always seems to happen around this time of year. Your kids turn into the little green people, looking for the pot ‘o gold. Here’s a list of great ways to celebrate St. Patty’s Day with your kids.
1. Sing Irish Songs
Irish songs are fun and easy to sing. Find some videos by the Shannon Rovers or the Clancy Brothers on YouTube. Google the lyrics and sing along.
2. Irish Dancing
Get your kids matching personalized St. Patty’s Day shirts, bring out the video camera, play some Irish music and stage your own version of Lord of the Dance. The whole family will be watching and enjoying the videos for years to come.
3. Draw a Picture
Have your kids draw what St. Patrick’s Day means to them and let their imagination run wild. You can try crayons, paints or any other fun art medium they might like. Pictures of leprechauns, rainbows and shamrocks will soon be coming to life.
4. Green Beverages
Pick up a little green food coloring and use it in milk for the kids to make a special St. Patty’s Day treat! It also works in mashed potatoes, eggs, water and more. For Mom and Dad, when it’s time to relax, green beer served in personalized beer glasses, mugs or steins will be a special treat of its own.
