Creative Projects and Recipes to Share with Kids
Today is Saint Patrick’s Day. Start the day with the kids by serving them some shamrock-shaped pancakes and green milk, make lunch with rainbow toast or Irish Soda Bread, serve corned beef and cabbage for dinner, and share Irish Potatoes (a candy) for dessert. Don’t forget to have the little ones follow a path of leprechaun footprints and read the children’s books about Saint Patrick’s Day we have linked to below.
