Now on to this week’s topic!
What sorts of fun St. Patrick’s Day activities do you do with your preschooler?
Here is what Mom Connection shared:
Welcome! I’m Julie over at Naptime Review. I am a mom of two wild, crazy and beautiful girls. My oldest just turned 4 and my baby is 16 months old. These are some fun St. Patrick’s Day activities that I do with my preschooler:
Happy St. Patrick’s everyone! This year, we are taking Averie to her first parade. Yes, mom and dad are putting down their green beer and trading it in for some family fun. She will be in awe of all the people. I can’t wait to relive it through her eyes.
Sunday, I plan on messing up her bedroom and displaying a whole bunch of gold coins on the floor. I even found the template for some leprechaun footprints. I thought about dipping Alice’s feet in green paint, but I quickly changed my mind on that one. Don’t need to get too crazy here!
About a week ago, we made some Leprechaun Munch and went around looking for the little guys. We had lots of fun and the munch is very tasty. Click here to read the recipe and see my adventure with the girls. Lots of fun!
Wishing everyone a fun and festive day!
Hi! I’m Cassie from Two In Diapers, and I’m a mommy to three sweet babies, ages 5, 3, and 20 months. These are some fun St. Patrick’s Day activities that I do with my preschoolers:
Our family has never been very big on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, surprisingly enough. However, although we don’t go out of our way to pretend leprechauns were in our home, we do enjoy the occasional St. Patty’s parade or other activity. The kids do plenty of celebrating through their school, and we do usually try to make sure we’re all wearing green. 🙂
We also like to take the opportunity to make these festive cookies to give as gifts to our family and friends. Besides that, we simply enjoy the occasional printable coloring page and St. Patrick’s Day themed television shows on our favorite channel – Sprout!
My name is Alexa from No Holding Back. I am the mom of Nayner Bug (male, 5), Jelly Bean, (female, 3) and Tiny (female, 1). These are some fun St. Patrick’s Day activities that I do with my preschooler:
I am one of the least creative or artsy moms in the world. OK, maybe not in the world, but honestly, if I hadn’t had this post to answer, St. Patrick’s Day would come and go and my kids would hardly know the difference.
But, when given a prompt, I can search Pinterest like a PRO! And I found some really cool and fun activities. So thanks to the Mom Connection, my kids might have the best St. Patrick’s Day EVER!
First I found a pin that led me to a whole collection of crafts, activities, and recipes on Parenting.com (http://www.parenting.com/gallery/st-patricks-day-crafts-recipes?pnid=632002)
As I clicked through, I found this really great St. Patrick’s Day Treasure Hunt, courtesy of Spoonful.com. http://spoonful.com/printables/st-patricks-day-treasure-hunt
This has just become my new favorite blog for activities and crafts! Spoonful.com has a ton of ideas for all occasions, printables, recipes, party invitations, treats, you name it!
The kids and I actually made these yesterday and sent them to school for teachers, so I am super proud of myself for getting festive!

Top o’ the morning to ya!
My name is Fotini! I blog over at Glamorous Affordable Life. I am the mom of (Isabella 2 years and Christian 6 years). These are some fun St. Patrick’s Day activities that I do with my preschooler:
I feel sort of out of the loop on this one because we don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Neither my husband nor I were raised celebrating the Holiday, so it’s not something we’ve incorporated into our household. With that said, I have came across many cute crafts to make with your little ones and I’d be happy to share them with you today! Here’s what I found: an adorable leprechaun hand print craft (here), lucky clover rice krispie treat (here), rainbow hand print pot-of-gold (here), rainbow water (here), and over the rainbow (here).
Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Surely we’re not the only ones who don’t 😉
What fun St. Patrick’s Day activities do you do with your preschooler?
