St. Patrick's Day Fun In a Pinch

Since St. Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday this year, you can make it an entire day of fun for the whole family with these great ideas for food, treats, and games from top o' the mornin' to late at night. Try some of these last-minute ideas for yourself!

Start by setting a leprechaun trap before the kids to go bed. A laundry basket, a stick, and a pot full of broccoli as bait starts all the fun. In the morning, the pot is gone, but the lucky leprechaun who got away has left the kids with a treasure hunt leading to a pot of gold. I love this idea from The Idea Room, especially for little ones.

MF St. Patrick's Day Breakfasts

A proper St. Patty's Day breakfast can be anything from simple to silly to savory. I love these ideas for green milk with Lucky Charms cereal, a stack of green pancakes, or green eggs and ham.

MF St. Patrick's Day Treats

My St. Patrick's Day Cream Puffs, Rainbow Cookies, Guinness Brownies are fun to make with kids and perfect to take to parties.

MF St. Patrick's Day Dinners

I love these lunch and dinner ideas, which offer fresh takes on traditional fare. Try Shepherd's Pie, Green Mac 'n' Cheese, or Corned Beef and Cabbage Pizza. I want them all!

Have a wonderful, safe, St. Patrick's Day, and may all your rainbows lead to a pot of gold!
