  1. Great tips! My son is only 4.5 so we keep parties to birthdays only, but I am looking forward to him being a little older and celebrating holidays like this with his friends!

  2. We don’t do a St. Patricks Day party at home, but my kids usually need something green for school. We always get some stickers or a light-up necklace at the Dollar Tree.

  3. I come from an Irish family so they were always celebrating St Pattys day but as an adult I don’t really celebrate it too much other then the great parades :-).

  4. Great tips — I’m definitely in the middle of planning crafts and activities for my kids this year. Love the fingerprint clover!
