Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to our little leprechauns! Be sure to wear a wee bit of green today or you might just get pinched!

If you missed all of the fun activities at the Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine table at the Mayor’s River O’Green Festival in downtown Tampa yesterday, we still have some great St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas for you!

Swinging Shamrocks

Swinging Shamrock







Cardboard tubes



Green paint

Fishing line/string



1. Cut four half-inch rings from a flattened cardboard tube, then cut through one of the folds on each ring.

2. For three of the rings, bend and glue the two ends to form a heart-shaped leaf.

3. Fold the fourth ring into a triangular stem and glue the ends together.

4. Glue the stem between two leaves, then glue on the third.

5. Paint the shamrock green. When it’s dry, hang it with fishing line or string.


Over the Veggie Rainbow

Small bowl

Dip of choice (we used guacamole–it’s green)

Bell peppers – various colors





1. Fill a small bowl with dip.

2. Slice four long strips of bell peppers in various colors and arrange them as shown.

3. Cut two small cauliflower clouds, skewer each with a toothpick, then position one on each side of the peppers.

4. Place sliced carrot coins beside the bowl for the leprechaun’s pot of gold.
