Try these 4 fun family activities to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year!
Our holidays this year all look different and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. There will be no big parades this year, even though the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Annapolis is one of our favorites and will be missed, we have a few other things for you to do to make this March 17th a full day of fun!
Throw Some Green on it
Put up some decorations to set the tone for the day. Use lots of green, rainbows, and gold. We hit the Dollar Tree store ever year and grab a few decorations to get festive.
Let your fashionistas shine and make a game of the day with your wardrobe. Who can wear the most green? Race to your closets, get decked out in green, have a fashion show, and vote for the best!
Make a Leprechaun Trap
Break out your arts and craft supplies and build a leprechaun trap. Set it out the night before St. Patrick’s Day to catch one of those cheeky leprechauns!

Make Some Yummy Fun
My mom always made our St. Patrick’s Day extra special. Especially because my maiden name is Patrick. Every March 17th we woke up to green bagels or green pancakes with green milk. She made sure we wore our green to school and when we got home we came home to Corned beef and cabbage with carrots and potatoes, all accompanied by Irish Soda bread. We continue these traditions by accompanying our traditional Irish dinner with a delicious treat. Try making an edible rainbow and if your leprechaun trap doesn’t work maybe this treat will catch one!
