Happy St. Patrick’s Day! As a stay at home mom I feel I need to do something fun and creative for all holidays. Yes, it’s so stressful and I hate doing crafts. So, then why do I do it?! Because seeing my little guys eyes light up in wonder is the best. As a parent, we are the magic makers. And as a baker I always like to try new things. Being creative is great and it helps pass the long days. So here are some things I did this St. Patrick’s day. Let me know your ideas and if these are helpful to you!
First, I made green chocolate chip cookies. Super easy, just add a few drops of green food coloring to your cookie dough.
Next, we made these leprechaun binoculars! They are made from toilet paper rolls and construction paper. Really easy but also really tedious. I was going to make 5 for all of Liam’s friends. But… I made 2 and was done!
Here are the supplies I used. It was easier to use Elmer’s glue than a glue stick in my opinion. Or you can use tape.
The binoculars are to see and find leprechauns! I printed out these cute little guys,
colored them without Liam knowing, and then used painters tape to stick them around the house so he had to find them in the morning! So fun. I also colored the toilet water green and told Liam that the leprechaun had to use the bathroom and didn’t flush 🙂
We had some friends over to share in our festivities and we had a blast!
Don’t worry, the bubbly was for the moms 😉
