5 Fun St Patrick’s Day Activities For Kids
#1. Learn About St Patrick
Why not learn a bit more about Saint Patrick and his story. Have peek at the Brown Bag Films short film about St Patrick, from a series based upon the 1960s recordings of young children telling Bible stories in a classroom to their school teacher:
#2. Get Crafty
We have lots of ideas for getting into the festive mood, in our 8 Fun St Patrick’s Day Crafts Kids will Love. Choose from shamrock suncatchers, wooden spoon leprechauns or growing hair leprechauns, and there lots more too! Sure to keep them amused for hours.
#3. Enjoy Some Irish Music
We are big fans of the Muppets here in our house. Love this rendition of “Danny Boy”!
#4. Make Some Sweet Treats (Themed Green of Course!)
Have fun making some Shamrock shaped cookies or add green food colouring to your usual fairy cake/bun icing. Or how about making green Rice Krispie buns?
Or for something a bit different, why not try these Mint Thins – they are incredibly simple and the end result is a flavour and texture that’s reminiscent of an “After 8″.

#5. Make Green Slime
Make some glowing green slime for St. Patrick’s day, using fluorescent paint. If you have a UV light, you can even have more fun seeing your slime glow in the dark! This slime will last for weeks in a ziplock bag or sealed container.
And of course, don’t forget to head along to your local parade for all the music, costumes and fun!
