We’ve put together a few of our favorite kid-friendly St. Paddy’s Day traditions. Here’s hoping the Luck of the Irish is with you and your family this Saint Patrick’s Day and every day!

1. Play a game of hot potato. Bonus for mom: No baking required!

2. Hold a potato hunt. That’s right, think Egg Hunt but with fingerling potatoes!

3. Read a fun book about the day. How to Catch a Leprechaun for grade school kids, Pete the Cat: The Great Leprechaun Chase for kids up to age 3, and Green for the older crowd. 

4. Make a shamrock craft. Stock up on green construction paper and craft supplies and let your kids have a blast! Click here to see our special St. Paddy's Day play dough recipe!
