St. Patrick's Day is going to be here before you know!! My kids are really into the whole Leprechaun visit and they love pinching people who aren't wearing green. I am going to share with you some really budget friendly ways to make St. Patrick's Day special for your little one's!
First off, you just need a few things from the store. Pick up some green food coloring, Lucky Charms cereal, and some yellow cake mix and icing of your choice. Add the green food coloring to the yellow cake mix and bake following instructions on the box. The cake (or cupcakes) will be green and super festive! Add a few Lucky Charms to the top of the cake after you ice it. You could serve the cake for dessert on St. Patrick's Day or even for a snack after school.
It's fun to decorate the kitchen table the morning of St. Patrick's Day with some festive beads to go along with the theme. Most of the items I use to decorate the kitchen table I already had lying around the house. Hobby Lobby also has a lot of great St. Patrick's Day decorations. Start the day out with really easy and fun St. Patrick's Day breakfast: green pancakes!! What kid doesn't love pancakes?! Dye the mix green and use a shamrock mold to shape the pancakes if you have a shamrock cookie cutter. If not, just making the green pancakes will do! A fun touch is green sprinkles and whipped cream. Don't forget to add green food coloring to the milk!!
When your little's are home from school you could serve them some super cute green snacks (check out my Pinterest board for lots of fun ideas) I personally love the green popcorn idea!
Make the day fun and creative with surprises around every corner. You could even leave a few gold coins under your child's pillow the night before or in their backpacks.
