Get ready to wear green and to trap some leprechauns! Here are some fun St. Patrick's Day activities you can do with your family!

Before we begin, here is a fun fact!

Do you know why we wear green on St. Patrick's Day? This tradition is based on the folklore that says, if you wear green, it makes you invisible to leprechauns who like to pinch anyone they see!


Start your day with a Lucky Breakfast!

Here is a simple and easy breakfast treat!


·      Lucky Charms Cereal

·      Milk

·      Green Food Coloring


1. Combine milk and food coloring to make your green leprechaun milk.

2. Pour milk in individual cups and cereal in separate bowls.

3. Enjoy your Lucky Breakfast!

·      Scissors
