Fun St. Patrick’s Recipes for Kids

Whether you are Irish or not, everyone is a wee bit of Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day! St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th and is always a fun holiday to celebrate with family and friends. We wanted to share these Fun St. Patrick’s Day Recipes for Kids with you so you and your family can celebrate, too!

My family is Irish, so playing up St. Patrick’s Day is always fun for me and our kids. We’ve done the leprechaun footprints, hunted for four-leaf clovers and made green smoothies to drink. My girls are always careful not to get pinched on St. Patrick’s Day, often wearing green to bed the night before “just to be on the safe side.” Well, besides the games, we love making fun and festive foods, too!

We have some traditional and some festive Irish inspired recipes to share. Everything from simple rainbow ideas, green breakfast ideas, and all the way to some traditional colcannon. So go ahead and grab something green to wear, add something Irish to your menu, and bring on all the rainbow foods to celebrate!
