St. Patrick's Day Family Fun Guide

March 7, 2022

I love St. Patrick's Day!  One of the few candy-free holidays, St. Patrick's Day is full of mischievous fun.  March 17 is the "feast" day (or celebration) for St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.  Over time, St. Patrick's Day has become the day to celebrate all things Irish, with green clothes (and even green food), parades, shamrocks, corned beef dinners and Irish soda bread.  Many families find that a naughty leprechaun has visited their home and pulled all kinds of pranks.  If the kids are able to catch the leprechaun, he'll lead them to a pot of gold! 

See below for all of the St. Patrick's Day recipes, crafts and activities that we've published over the years.
