Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kids? We’re not Irish (though I did spend one amazing St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin, Ireland!), so we don’t really celebrate the day. But, I do love any excuse for a little fun. For St. Patrick’s Day, that usually involves some green attire and possibly some fun green or Leprechaun related food! So, here are some fun food ideas that are sure to make your St. Patrick’s day shamROCK! ;)
You can make just about anything “St. Patrick’s Day-ish” by using a little green food coloring or using some Lucky Charms cereal! All perfect for fun treats. Here are a few easy options along those lines to whip up:
Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons always has adorable fun kid-food ideas and she certainly delivers for St. Patrick’s Day with Leprechaun Ice Cream Cones AND a Leprechaun Lunch! After your little Leprechauns have had their fun, why not serve up some rainbow trifles? Perfect for Leprechauns hunting for pots of gold!
One very popular item this time of year is the “Shamrock Shake”! You could go the copycat homemade shake route or for those watching calories, you could try a sugar free shake option. Or you could do a different twist altogether and make shamrock shake cupcakes like the ones shown above!
Then of course, if you are looking for something that has become a rather traditional St. Patrick’s Day option, you could try our crock pot corned beef & cabbage recipe! I guarantee the kids won’t think it’s as fun as shamrock shakes or green cake pops, but it sure is tasty! So, you can serve it up for dinner and then have some of the fun treats above for dessert!
