bringing the magic of st. patrick's day to your kids

st. patty's day is saturday and there are many fun and easy things you can do to bring a sparkle of excitement to your kiddos eyes with the awe of leprechaun magic. i would love to share with you a few things that i plan on doing in our home this year.


green food coloring will be your bff for this holiday because you can use it for a multitude of things.....and it's easy! the leprechaun that comes to our home turns everything he can green: the gallon of milk, pancake batter, the toilet water and even the bath water at bedtime. these ideas are simple and only take a few seconds, however the happiness on your child's face will last all day.

i am obsessed with the idea of making this leprechaun trap cake that i found on not martha....but i truly am not martha. not even close.....so i am just not sure i could pull it off and might need to stick to store bought cake mix and canned frosting turned green. but maybe.....




hoosier homemade has the most adorable cupcakes and even has a video tutorial. love.


the fickle pickle has the *best* idea for a leprechaun trap. i am planning this as an activity with the kids for sure. love. love. love.


so, how about you? how are you going to bring the magic of st. patty's day into your house this year?
