Luckily, there are so many exciting ideas for the whole family, from lively St. Patrick’s Day games to festive traditions, crafts and other activities involving delicious food and drink.
Perhaps you want to get creative with some St. Patrick’s Day crafts with the kids, or maybe even embrace Irish culture by learning how to stepdance in your living room. And what would a St. Paddy’s celebration be without some green drinks and some traditional Irish food? No matter how you choose to celebrate, these fun activities for kids, adults and the entire family will get everyone in the spirit of the holiday — and best of all, they might just bring you the luck of the Irish!
Drink Green Beer
If there’s one thing that’s a must-do on St. Paddy’s, it’s drinking green beer! Whether you favor Guinness or something else, indulge in a pint this March 17 — and make sure to do an Irish toast for some extra luck.
Plan a Scavenger Hunt
For an extra-fun activity with the whole family, set up a scavenger hunt around the house with clues that lead to some delicious treats (like chocolate coins). Who knows — you might just find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
Recite an Irish Blessing
Enjoy a Family Brunch
Even though St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t kick off the holiday with a festive family brunch at home. Make sure to prepare some delicious treats — and don’t forget the festive party decorations, of course.
Why not start an annual St. Paddy’s Day tradition of planting shamrocks in your backyard, or growing them as house plants? Not only are these clovers perfectly festive for the holiday, they also last longer than a sack of green candy.
Bake Soda Bread
What would St. Paddy’s Day be without some classic soda bread on the table? A traditional Irish specialty, this yummy treat will add a festive flair to every St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
