Look at me! I’m finally early! I have always love St. Patrick’s Day and it is also my sister’s birthday!

Want to have some fun with your kids or with the grown ups in your life? I have traditionally done a meal of green mashed potatoes, green butter on rolls, sausage, and broccoli. I have also given my kids Skittles for the rainbow and Rolos for the pot of gold. Easy and lots of bang for your buck. They loved it! Last year I made Jen’s Irish soda bread and OMG – you need to make it! You can make her corned beef and cabbage, too.

Here are some fun ideas I found on Pinterest…

I think I would just do the food coloring in the bowl and not do the leprechaun footprints. Hey, I think I will do this to Tom and see if he calls the doctor to find out what is wrong with him. I have to get my laughs where I can.

How cute are these Lucky Charms rice krispie treats? Oh, yeah, I always bought Lucky Charms for my kids’ breakfast on St. Patrick’s Day, too. This is a big treat if you don’t normally do sugary cereals!

Look how cute this centerpiece is:

I do have tons of gold coins I bought at Dollar Tree a few years ago!

People are so stinkin’ creative! You could do this with my sister Molly’s sun dried tomato cheese ball!

You grew up in the 80s if this punch was at every party. I could go for some of this punch right now!

How cute would a green charcuterie board be?

How cool is this – take a pack of Oreos and use edible gold spray paint on them?

Easy, but so cute. My childhood fave cereal was Golden Grahams! Anyone?

Do you have any St. Patrick’s Day traditions?

Would you try any of these ideas?

  1. Cuuuuute ideas! Our kindergarten teachers always put green dye in the toilets and added those little leprechaun footprint. The kids got so excited. I love all of these ideas and you are right, people are SO creative. I may have to try a few of these!


  2. Nope, no St Patty’s day traditions here. I must’ve been that boring mom! I am so thankful that Pinterest, IG and such wasn’t around when my kids were growing up. They didnt know they were missing out on these things !! LOL …I do remember my mom and dad drinking green beer!


    1. Ha – we all were before Pinterest except a super creative neighbor of ours growing up. We have told her she was the original Pinterest! I remember a year that I drank a ton of green beer… I won’t give any more details…
