St. Patrick’s Day is a festive occasion that is celebrated by people of all ages. It is a day when people dress up in green clothes and eat traditional Irish food.

Saint Patrick’s Day Decorations
As with any holiday, decorating your home is a great way to get into the spirit of things. For Saint Patrick’s Day, you can put up green streamers and balloons, shamrock cut-outs, and even green lights. Of course, you can also make your own Saint Patrick’s Day banners and garlands out of construction paper or felt. Get creative and have fun with it!
Saint Patrick’s Day Crafts
Next, there are tons of fun Saint Patrick’s Day crafts that you can do with your kids. Make shamrock sun catchers, Saint Patrick’s Day cards, leprechaun traps, and more. In addition, there are plenty of ideas online, or you can use your own imagination.
Shamrock sun catchers are an easy craft for your St Patricks Day celebration. Use tissue paper, scissors, glue, and glitter. First, cut shamrocks out of green tissue paper. Next, glue glitter to the shamrocks. Finally, hang the shamrocks in a sunny window and see the colors peek through! What a festive craft for this March holiday!
Leprechaun traps are a popular Saint Patrick’s Day craft. The idea is to build a trap that will catch a leprechaun so that you can find his pot of gold. You can use any materials you have around the house to build your trap. Some popular ideas include using a shoe box, toilet paper rolls, and yarn. Be creative and have fun!
Saint Patrick’s Day Games
What would a holiday be without some games? For Saint Patrick’s Day, you can play traditional Irish games like hurling or Gaelic football. However, if you want ready-to-go games safe and fun for all ages, try some St Patricks Day puzzles or escape rooms!
Saint Patrick’s Day Escape Rooms
Escape rooms are the perfect celebratory activity for all ages. The St Patricks Day trivia escape is one of my favorites. This ready-to-go code-breaking game has everything you need to get started!
First, simply print and play! Your little leprechauns work through five challenges with five trivia questions and a puzzle decoder. The answers to the questions determine the lock codes with increasingly difficult puzzles. There’s an answer bank to make it easier, so the game is appropriate for all ages!
Also, try the Lucky’s Hat escape room or Pot of Gold escape room for more St Patricks Day fun!
Another variation on Saint Patrick’s Day escape room is the St Patricks Day murder mystery. “Lead detectives'' set out to solve the case with the help of a “Top Secret Case File”. Hide the puzzles and have kids figure out clues in order to eliminate suspects.
There are also “crime scene” props included to make it feel real. Have fun with these Saint Patrick’s Day games!
Saint Patrick’s Day Food
Of course, no holiday is complete without some delicious food! For Saint Patrick’s Day, you can make traditional Irish dishes like shepherd’s pie or reuben sandwiches. Or, you can get creative and make green foods like green macaroni and cheese, green cupcakes, or even a green smoothie. If you want a breakfast on St Patricks Day, why not green eggs and ham? The possibilities for green food are endless!
No matter how you choose to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with your family, the important thing is to have fun and create some lasting memories. Try these Saint Patrick’s Day party ideas for kids for a last minute, fun party this March!
