Play St. Paddy's Day Games


Assuming your kids aren't yet built for a traditional game of Irish football or rugby, try some of these games in honor of St. Patrick's Day! Play a game of hot potato or consider a "potato hunt" (think: Easter egg hunt but with small potatoes) or a "Pot o' Gold" treasure hunt (a search for gold chocolate coins or homemade "gold"). Or, try this simple green candy guessing game.
