St. Patty's Day Fun!

Since I am a wee bit Irish, I love to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and my kids do, too!  They have been planning for the past few weeks what to wear to school so they don't get pinched.  Here are some leprechaun-approved ideas to prepare your kids for March 17th. 

Simple, fun and festive.  From Eighteen 25, the St. Patrick's Day Necklace.  You and your child can make a rainbow like this one, make one all green, or a colorful mix.  Anyway you make it, it will still look Irish!
From Happy Home Fairy comes this delightful family dinner idea, Conversational Cards!  Simply print the free, printable St. Patty's Day Conversational Cards and take turns reading them at dinner on Sunday, or spread them over a few family meals.
Lastly, I love this collection of Celtic & Irish Folktales for Kids from What Do We Do All Day (clever name, too!).
