St. Patrick’s Day Hacks for Moms Who Aren’t Pinterest Perfect


St. Patrick’s Day can be such an enjoyable vacation! But, if you don’t have a great deal of time, or simply aren’t crafty, it can be difficult to commemorate with your kids. Don’t spend a lot, and don’t tension about huge tasks – simply utilize a few of these basic concepts to make the vacation unique!

This is the most basic craft I have actually ever done.  It took simply 4 hours from start to complete!  This is best for a last-minute, shoot-i-forgot-it’s-St.-Patrick’s-Day-tomorrow, t-shirt.

All you require is a t-shirt (our was $2.97 from Walmart), green acrylic paint (we discovered ours for $0.50 at Walmart in the craft area), a printed image of a shamrock that you can eliminate, and a foam brush.  Search for a big shamrock online.  Cut it out and after that set it on the t-shirt.  Hold it in location while you brush green paint along the edges.  Allow it to dry and you’ve got an easy St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt!

Fancy pancakes are all the rage on Pinterest today. I enjoy them! Truth is, I have a difficult time simply getting my pancakes prepared without burning, so I’m never ever going to have the ability to make an elegant pancake. BUT I can color pancake batter green, and I can utilize a shamrock cookie cutter to eliminate a best shamrock! Make breakfast enjoyable on St. Patrick’s Day without requiring an art degree with these charming pancakes!



If you desire an enjoyable reward to send out in the kid’s lunch boxes on St. Patricks Day, we have an incredibly basic option! Rainbow Twizzlers are offered year-round, and are the best reward for this vacation! Add some Rolos for the gold at the end of the rainbow, stick them in a clear reward bag, and twist and connect it shut – and you have the best reward! No unique abilities are required!


If you require a quick reward, or simply get to completion of St. Patrick’s Day and recognize you’ve not done anything unique, you can work up this reward in less than 5 minutes! Lucky Charms Treats. It’s precisely the like Rice Krispie Treats, you simply replace the rice puffs for Lucky Charms. Simple as that! We utilized a scandal sheet of Lucky Charms that are all green and gold. My hubby has actually raved about these because I made them – they’re not simply for kids!


This one is a lot enjoyable – my little woman simply enjoyed it! With supper, on St. Patrick’s Day, you can make things enjoyable really, really quickly with Rainbow Water (or lemon-lime soda). Simply fill the ice tray the night in the past, and include simply one drop of food coloring to each ice. The next day, when you’re all set to serve, basically one cube of each color into a cup filled with water or lemon-lime soda! It’s so vibrant and enjoyable!
