My kiddos love holidays—every holiday! They don’t discriminate. So, even if we aren’t technically Irish, we still make a big deal of St. Patrick’s Day. We wear green, we chase Leprechauns, we hunt for that veritable pot of gold, and we eat ALL the corned beef and cabbage. (It’s actually my fave meal of the entire year—no, seriously.)

Of course, it goes without saying that we also do fun crafts and eat sweet treats. If it’s green it counts as a traditional St. Paddy’s Day food in my extremely unofficial book. (Ha!)
