St. Patrick's Day comes and goes at our house with little fanfare. But this year, my kids were like mom," What are we doing for St. Patrick's Day?" my response was, "We will eat Lucky Charms and drink green Kool Aid." Of course, that didn't go over too well. They were expecting St. Patrick's Day to come with some sort of gift giving opportunity. Sadly, I disappointed them. So since that idea was not well received, I came up with a couple of things for us to do during the week.
We went on a green scavenger hunt. We snapped pictures of green things that we found during the week. Which has actually gone on now for more like 2 weeks. These are a couple of our favorite pictures.
These screamed St. Patrick's Day. We will probably do this again next year. The kids seemed to enjoy it.
We also participated in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Atlanta, which I posted about earlier. Lastly, I pranked the kids. We really love the book Elf on the Shelf and have fun with it during Christmas. So, I decided that I would put green food coloring in the toilet, with a little glitter for extra effect. I told the kids that a leprechaun visited us and used our potty. They seemed to get a good laugh out of that.
