12 Easy Ways to Add Some “Fun & Yum” to Your St. Patrick's Day
With our love for “all things clovers”, we love celebrating St. Patty’s Day as “Clover Day!” Like most holiday celebrations, we try to keep things fun, easy and yummy! This year we may even try a few new traditions and recipes.
Honestly, every holiday can be turned into a super fun holiday for kids with just a little food coloring! Clover Day is the perfect example of this. The goal is all things GREEN! I have holiday bins that hold some decorations that go up like decorative plates, confetti and a door hanger. Some times I have fun soaps for bathrooms, paper plates and napkins. I do tend to stock up on cupcake holders with clovers on them, since we will use those year round for fun. However, like I said before, food coloring really is all you need!!
So, if you want to make today a super fun celebration of a sweet little holiday, grab some green food coloring and try some of these things for breakfast.
Here are 12+ Ways to Add Some Fun & “Yum” to Your Clover Day!
Breakfast Fun!!-No planning involved:
- Green pancakes
- Green eggs
- Green oatmeal
- Green milk
- Green grapes
- Green OJ (yes, this does sound weird, but it did work!)
Easy, but you may have to go to the store:
- Lucky Charms cereal
- Key Lime Yogurt (or Key Lime Yogurt Pie!)
- Green Muffins (just add green to your favorite recipe or box mix)
New Things We Are Going to Try This Year:
1) Lucky Charms Treats — If you want to add some extra “yum” to your Clover Day, then this is the recipe! It's pretty much same recipe as Rice Crispy Bars, but with Lucky Charms!
Update: Oh my! These were so good! I think we found our new Clover Day favorite treats! (Here is the recipe that we used).
2) Lime Sherbet Floats — simply add some ginger ale or 7 Up to some lime sherbert and you have a green, foamy, yummy dessert drink! Very fun and refreshing. You can also try using rainbow sherbet.
Update: Yes, we really like these! I will say that we preferred using ginger ale over 7 Up. However, either will work (we are just ginger ale fans).
3) Leprechaun Hats — Take an upside down Kebbler Fudge Stripes cookie, put a chocolate dipped marshmallow on top and add a bit of green icing to the base of your marshmallow — and now you have a little s'mores style hat.
Update: So, we never ended up making these cute hats. We bought the supplies & just ate the cookies. They look really cute though. So, try them out and let me know what you think. (Click the picture or the title to go to the website on how to make them).
We often read Green Eggs & Ham, too! Dinner tonight will be a Ham & Potato Soup and some yummy bread. I'll post that recipe later. Really it's good anytime of the year!
Hope you have a very Happy Clover Day!!
P.S. You can visit my Pintrest Clover Day page for loads of fun ideas. Just don't get overwhelmed. I like to keep things super simple!! Also, if you missed this post for breakfast you can always do a fun “Breakfast for Dinner” night. My kids love that! Just don't forget the green!! 🙂
