St. Patrick’s Holiday

As a kid I thought St Patrick’s Day was a Fun Holiday. Teachers at school would display pots of gold with rainbows and read stories about leprechauns. Everyone was careful to wear green that day – so they would not suffer from being pinched by all their friends. Everyone wanted to be Irish on that day.

As a parent it is a good excuse to make a fun day for my kids. I have seen some great ideas for St. Patrick’s Day posted by friends on Pinterest.

1. Fun ideas like “taste the rainbow jello” from Glorious Treats.

Short on time this week so I have to admit I went for the easy stuff: Lucky Charms, Skittles and green ice cream (chocolate chip mint.)
