St. Patrick's Day Party

In past years we have never really celebrated St. Patrick's Day, other than just wearing green. But after reading about it more, there are so many fun things that you can do! So this year we decided to make more fun and have a little party. My son invited a few friends over for some treats, games and activities. Let's start off with always my favorite... the treats! I wanted to create a mini snack table that the kids would find fun and colorful.

A large pot of chocolate gold coins was the centerpiece for the table, then we had shamrock cupcakes, wax lips, little leprechaun cookies, rainbow jello, and green juice to drink.

All the kids built Leprechaun traps for our activity. There are TONS of fun different styles and designs available online. My son picked out one that he liked and we built a sample one for a test run. When you lift the pot of gold, the cage falls down...

For the party, I pre-cut and assembled all the bases for the traps. Then the kids glued on the grass, cut out trails, and made the tissue rainbows.
All the kids had such a fun time building their own and talking about how they were going to catch a leprechaun and what they would do with all the gold he would give them! Here is my little cutie with his finished one...
One of the games the kids played was 'Don't Eat Lucky'. The game was a free printable and instructions found here.
The kids went on a little scavenger hunt to find their party favors, little pots of chocolate gold coins.
We also had some little fun photo props for the kids, my favorite was the leprechaun disguise kit...
Needless to say it was way fun and a huge success. This may become a tradition every year!
I will let you all know if the trap worked and we caught something... so check back later to see what happens!
