St. Patrick’s Day Party for Kids!

 We don’t have much planned for St. Patrick’s Day decor because we don’t really care about it! BUT…we like the fun little activities that come with the green day, and last year, before Aaron started preschool, we hosted a party for all of his little church friends at our house. It was a lot of fun, and Aaron was thrilled to have everyone over for a fun-filled “green” day!
 He made his own decorations…
 and helped me put together this fruit rainbow for a snack. Each child brought a snack to share as well.
 Not only was it pretty to look at, it tasted awesome too.
 There was lots of green attire…
 and fun St. Patrick’s day themed crafts. I cut out a bunch of little leprechauns out of the cricut “Paperdoll” cartridge and the children glued them together.
 Then they all went on a treasure hunt to find the pot of gold.
 That lead them to these fun little “pots of gold” that I ordered from Oriental Trading and filled with gold coins and rolos.
Now he is in preschool and can have lots of fun little parties at school. Most of his friends are a few months older and are in kindergarten so they are all on different schedules, but we look back on these fun pre-preschool days with fond memories!

    I absolutely love that fruit rainbow! I’m always on the hunt for healthy and tasty foods to feed kids, and this would be a great addition. Thanks for the inspiration!

    We do a St. Patricks Day family party night every year with games. It’s so much fun! We’ve done the fruit rainbow before, as well, only we use a cream cheese dip for the clouds. Although I think Ashley would be more excited about the marshmallows, so we may have to add that in this year, as well! Cute ideas! :)

    I LOVE the fruit rainbow! I might use that idea for Natalie’s classroom. They always encourage healthier snacks and this is perfect!!
