St. Patrick’s Day Snack Ideas

Let’s talk munchies.

We know crafting can work up quite the appetite in your little leprechauns, so why not keep the green theme going with some snacks that are as fun to look at as they are to eat?

Think about skewering up some Lucky Kabobs with green grapes, kiwi slices, and chunks of honeydew melon.

They’re like edible wands of healthiness that the kids can wave around between coloring sessions.

And if you’re feeling extra crafty, use a shamrock cookie cutter to press out Shamrock Sandwiches.

Fill them with cucumber and cream cheese or avocado for a snack that’s as green as the Emerald Isle itself!

Don’t stop there, though.

Whip up a Magic Mint Smoothie with some spinach (they won’t even taste it!), a banana, and a dash of mint extract.

It’s a potion of nutrients that would make any druid proud.

And for the grand finale, how about some Emerald Veggie Dip?

Just blend up some avocado and a bit of yogurt for a dip that’s perfect with sliced bell peppers or whole-wheat pita triangles.

St. Parick’s Day Crafts

Let’s keep the creative pot bubbling after the placemats are all colored in, with some St. Patrick’s Day crafts that are easy as pie and twice as fun!

Shamrock Garlands: Let’s turn your home into an Irish festival with homemade shamrock garlands.

Just trace and cut out shamrock shapes from green construction paper (bonus points if you find that elusive four-leaf clover!).

Punch holes in them and string them onto some yarn or ribbon.

Hang them up and voilà, your place is looking lucky!

You can expand on this activity by cutting the shamrocks out of white paper and having your kids paint or color the shamrocks,


Rainbow Mobiles: Grab some cotton balls, stretch them out for fluffy clouds, and attach strips of colorful ribbon or paper to create a flowing rainbow.

Hang it up and let it swing gently in the breeze – no storm is required for this rainbow!


Pot of Gold Collages: For a treasure at the end of your rainbow, let’s make some pot of gold collages.

Cut out a pot shape from black paper and glue on some yellow circles for gold coins.

Get fancy with glitter or foil for that extra sparkle and stick it at the end of your rainbow mobile.


Rainbow Bracelets:  Thread colorful beads in a rainbow sequence onto elastic string to make bright, cheerful bracelets.

It’s a great fine motor skill exercise and gives your kids a lucky charm to wear.

We have more St. Patrick’s Day crafts and rainbow crafts to help keep your toddlers and preschoolers busy!
