Fun, last minute St. Patrick’s Day ideas

Fun, last minute St. Patrick’s Day ideas

Every year my kids come home from school with tales of all of the naughty things that their friends leprechaun’s have done. First of all, I didn’t know that we were doing the leprechaun thing. Did I miss the memo somewhere along the way?

Regardless, I am succumbing to peer pressure this year and indulging my children. I don’t mind, assuming I don’t have to 1) get too crafty. and 2) spend very much money.

So this is easy (assuming you can easily find the spray) but I believe that I have seen it at Wal-Mart. If you have a Hobby Lobby near you that is also a great bet.

I absolutely love this idea for green milk and lucky charms that we found here on Pintrest. In fact, I am making a note to pick up some Lucky Charms on my way home from work tonight. Hey, I might have the ideas but that doesn’t mean I have everything all together!

Grab some chocolate gold coins (my local grocery has them for $1 and each bag has about 10 or 15 coins . I like to hide them around my house and have my kids hunt for them. I do however mark the coins with their first initial because ain’t no body has time for fights over coins.

I hope this helps spark some creative thoughts for St. Patrick’s day while alleviating stress! I would love to hear what you come up with for your own kiddos, be sure to share with us in the comments!

I totally missed the st. Pat's memo. When i was a teacher the leprechaun visited our room during recess and made a tiny mess. But that was it! Come link up!
