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.

Don't forget to hydrate! Forego sugary juices and sodas and pack a bottle of water in your child's lunch. If your child likes a little more flavor, spice it up with lemon, lime, cucumbers, or fresh fruit.
