St. Patrick Crafts and Children Activities for Birthday Parties
Kids and adults alike love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day! There is nothing compared to being able to get away with a green ensemble while roaming around the streets and participating in the parade and festivities that come with the celebration of this special day. Whether you care about celebrating your Irish heritage or you’re someone who would simply want to have some fun, there is a party for you to crash and enjoy out there.
However, donning a green suit should not be limited to St. Patrick’s Day alone. You can still feel lucky and enjoy the bright colours of this themed-celebration even on birthday parties. This is also a unique idea on how to make children parties extra special and fun.
Here are some of the crafts and children’s activities you can try as you celebrate a birthday, the St. Patrick way!
St. Patrick Themed Decorations
It might be interesting to see a leprechaun floating on the pool side or several pots of golds around your party venue. St. Patrick Day is all about great accent colours. Green will remain as the main theme for the celebration but you can also include a few shades of white, red, gold, and pastel colours to let the green colour stand out among the rest. You can also mix things up by having streamers and balloons in different creative ways. Gold balloons would be an ideal accent to a green-themed venue.
St. Patrick Day-Inspired Recipes
Although dishes like corned beef and cabbage would seem to be out of place for a birthday party, you can still serve this authentic St. Patrick Day menu creatively. Create a cake that looks like a can of corn beef or a cabbage. Much better if you can create a cake that looks like a pot of gold. Another interesting menu would be cookies shaped like four-leaf clovers and other rainbow-coloured sweets that kids would love.
St. Patrick Day Inspired Craft Ideas
Kids will enjoy face painting at the party! Hire a professional or someone who can do St. Patrick Day-inspired face paint for the kids. You can also have a cookie decorating contest. To be more creative, cookies should be in the shape of a four-leaf clover, a leprechaun, or a pot of gold, whichever you can pull off on the actual day of the party. Kids can also be asked to arrive in a DIY St. Patrick Day costume at the party. Best in costume can win a pot of gold, with chocolates and other sweets inside.
