Are you looking for activities to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the kids? This blog contains a few fun ideas to get your kids excited about the holiday.

It’s almost time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the kids. This blog has a few ideas that will have your children excited to celebrate the holiday every year! Up your St. Patrick’s Day game with the following activities for the kids. Don’t worry—the adults will have fun participating, too.

Set Up a Scavenger Hunt

This fun activity can involve the whole family. Hide clues around the house or outside that will lead to a pot of gold at the end. Set the scene with rainbows, four-leaf clovers, and leprechauns. Fill the pot of gold with chocolate candies, green trinkets, and boxes of Lucky Charms to keep with the St. Patrick’s Day theme. Everyone will have fun running around finding clues!

Make St. Patrick’s Day Crafts

Kids love to get creative by painting, coloring, and sculpting. Let them paint rainbows on paper plates or draw shamrocks on paper. Try to find St. Patrick’s Day-themed activity books. The kids can tackle mazes, circle the differences in a picture, and color a leprechaun. After the kids finish creating their masterpieces, hang up the paintings.

Bake Soda Bread

Do you want a delicious side dish for your St. Patrick’s Day meal? Head to the store and gather all the ingredients to bake soda bread with the kids. Have the kids measure the items, stir everything together, and dump the mixture into the bread pan. After the bread finishes baking, the kids will enjoy tasting their creations. You may have found a delicious Irish treat to bake every year.

Make Shamrock Pizzas

This lunch idea is likely to be a hit with the kids. Take English muffins or bagels and have the kids spread their favorite pizza sauce or marinara sauce on them. Top the sauce with mozzarella cheese. Slice a bell pepper horizontally to look like a shamrock, and place it on top of the cheese. Put the mini pizzas into the oven or toaster oven and bake them until the cheese melts.

Virtual Field Trip to Ireland

Not everyone can take a trip to visit Ireland, so what’s the next best thing? How about a virtual field trip to Ireland? Today’s technology allows families to explore the green countryside and historic buildings from the comforts of their homes. Let the kids tell you what they’d like to see and then go there online. Everyone will feel like they’re in Ireland.

Enjoy these St. Patrick’s Day activities and create family memories. If you love them, make them a tradition. There are plenty of other family-friendly activities to enjoy in the Portland area after St. Patrick’s Day to keep the family active. Try one, or try them all!
