6 Fun St.Patrick's Day Activities Kids Will Love

Good Afternoon guys

I hope you are all having a great start to the week! 

In today's blog, we're going to be talking about all things St.Patrick's Day. We are going to be providing some fantastic activities to help you celebrate St.Patrick's Day with the children. 

St.Patrick's Day is one of the most celebrated events on the calendar - not just for the Irish. It is celebrated by millions of people around the world. 

Who is St.Patrick and why it is celebrated? 

Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is known for taking Christianity to Ireland. Saint Patrick was born in Wales and at just 16 years old. He was taken to Ireland as a slave, but managed to escape after six years, following a message from god. Patrick descended on France, where he became a priest, before returning to Ireland sometime later. Upon his return, he managed to covert much of the Irish population to Christianity. He died in Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland on 17th March, 461 A.D and each year millions come together to celebrate the legends life (also known as St.Patrick's Day). 

There is more to just St.Patrick's Day than just corned beef and green beer. It is a great even for loved ones to come together and have some fun (Irish or not). There are some many fun activities to get your little ones involved. 

Take them to a Baby Sensory Class 

Young children may enjoy sensory activities where they can become familiar with the Shamrock shape and play with colours of the rainbow. 

Make Irish-Themed Crafts 

 Of all St.Patrick's Day activities children will love, getting creative with crafts is not one to be overlooked. Stock up on craft suppliers like pipe cleaners in different colours, cotton balls, leprechaun gold for a pot of gold craft. Then get creative with your little one. You can make St.Patrick's Day decorations such as the Shamrock, four-leaf clover, pots of gold, leprechauns and rainbows. Such crafts are a great way for your little one to develop key motor skills but the best part is how much fun you will have. You can find some great Irish inspiration on Pinterest or here are a few activities to get you started:
