St. Patrick’s Day does not have to be exhausting and overwhelming! Check out these fun and EASY St. Patrick’s Day Traditions for fun ways to celebrate this LUCKY holiday!

There are so many holidays to celebrate and while I enjoy going ALL OUT on some of them, I LOVE to simplify St. Patrick’s Day. I think it is fun recognize holidays and make them memorable for my kiddos, but that doesn’t mean I have to lose my mind in the process. I’ve got a handful of easy St. Patrick’s Day Traditions that I like to incorporate into our festivities. Some years I only pick one tradition to do and other years I’ll do three or four! It honestly depends on how I am feeling and what I’ve got going on in life. No matter what I do though, I know that my kids love it and we create fantastic memories!


My kids LOVE balloons! You could cover the ground in their room or the family room with green or rainbow balloons or even just tie a few on the back of their chair in the kitchen. I am planning on creating the balloon rainbow again – it has been a hit year after year! How cute is this picture from the first year I did it, back in 2012!!


I also made this fun St.Patrick’s Day Centerpiece and Pillowboxes to have on the table when my kids came down for the day!

My kids could seriously do games non-stop on holidays! These game ideas are all free printables which means, all you need to do is download and print. Some do require some companion items, like Skittles or a candy. But, they still require very little prep!

My kids could craft all day and building a Leprechaun Trap is one of the funnest things for them! This takes a little more time than some of the other traditions, but it always seems to be talked about year after year. I love all these fun traps that you can either copy or use for ideas!
