Shamrock shakes are a St. Patrick's Day staple, so make your own at home to celebrate the holiday. Use mint ice cream and a few drops of green food coloring or a spoonful of matcha powder to achieve the recognizable flavor and color. A mini shamrock cookie cutter can help you create the festive topping by shaking a bit of matcha powder onto the whipped cream topping!

3. Create "Leprechaun Traps" With Kids To Enjoy 

How to Make a Leprechaun Trap for Kids on St. Patrick's Day

Think of a leprechaun trap as a more elaborate version of leaving milk and cookies out for Santa Claus.

In the days leading up to St. Patrick's Day, you help your kids build the leprechaun trap, fill it with "bait"—gold coins, candy, rainbows... anything that might strike a leprechaun's fancy—then leave it out before bed on March 16, St. Patrick's Day Eve. While the kids sleep, the leprechaun will visit the trap and take the "bait." 

Of course you'll also need plenty of craft supplies to make the trap enticing. Markers, paint, glitter, craft sticks, wrapping paper, tissue paper, pipe cleaners—it's all fair game. Popular items to use as "bait" include: 

  • Chocolate gold coins
  • Tons of green (a leprechaun's favorite color!)
  • Four-leaf clovers
  • Rainbows
  • Lucky Charms cereal
  • Skittles
  • Green M&Ms
  • Rolos
  • Ring pops
  • Green desserts

4. Enjoy a Green Cocktail or Mocktail at Home

Be prepared to have a green smile on St. Patrick's Day. Beverages at restaurants, street festivals, and bars are often dyed green in honor of the day—and if you're staying home this year, it's the perfect time to try making your own. But no need to dye anything since there are plenty of ways to make your drinks green using fresh ingredients. Simple tricks to try to "green" your drinks in your kitchen is adding ingredients like cucumber, lime, mint, or even green tea to a classic mojito recipe. Just remove the alcohol to make it a "NO-jito!" Perfect for a happy hour get together with your neighbors or having a get together in your Blenheim home!
