St. Patrick is a great and fun holiday, that is climaxed with a wonderful and joyful St. Patrick’s Day parade. There are many outdoor celebrations and events, but for the family and especially for little kids, we have come up with three indoor activities that can help you celebrate this holiday with your kid.

 

1. Making Green Drinks

Irish dark beer cannot be an option for our kids, but how about sipping on a green drink? You can make it together with your child while discussing the significance of this color on St. Patrick's Day.

You will only need a few ingredients from the grocery to make green limeade or fresh green smoothie at home with a mixer. Or, you can add anything with green that your kids like.

Green smoothies can be made perfectly by following the 60/40 formula.

  1. Prepare two cups of leafy greens such as spinach, kale, romaine, bokchoy, swiss chard, collards, and dandelion.
  2. Prepare two cups of liquid base among four choices: water, coconut water, coconut milk or almond milk.
  3. Blend leafy greens and liquid base together first.
  4. Add three cups of ripe fruits. Your choice could be banana, mango, berries, orange, avocado, peach, pear, apple, pineapple or grapes. Then, add fruits and blend again.

 

2. Planting Shamrocks

As many people know, shamrock is the symbolic plant of Ireland, and you might already also know that gardening is one of the favorite activities for all kids alike. Why don’t we start an annual St. Paddy's Day tradition of planting shamrocks in your backyard or of growing them as house plants

These clovers are perfectly festive for the holiday and they also last longer than a sack of green candy. 

You can easily get a small pot from a close arts and crafts shop, dollar store or a department store like Walmart, get shamrock seeds and soil from a gardening or plants store and plant one? You would be surprised that they are pretty easy to grow and take care of and your child will love the fact they can follow their own plant while growing.

 

3. Listening to an Irish History Podcast

Do you know about the 1177 Norman Invasion of Munster? History related podcasts are surprisingly very interesting and gripping, and might help your kids learn a thing or two about Irish history.

These podcasts talk about everything from Norman invasions to daily life in the medieval frontier, with categories including “The Story of Ireland” and “Modern History. These podcasts are not kid-friendly but helpful for elementary school age kids to acquire historical knowledge.

Curious kids might also enjoy National Geographic’s website with fun facts about Ireland


With the above three ideas you can enjoy at home and have a safe and relaxing St. Patrick’s day with your kids!
