Disclaimer: I have never celebrated St Patrick's Day with the girls. I'm not Irish and always felt awkward buuuuut as it turns out Brian does have some Irish in him and now there are no limits. Actually I was madly inspired by Courtney and her love of all holidays. This low-key holiday turned out to be the most fun to celebrate and we're already looking forward to next year!
We started two days before St Patrick's Day by gathering and painting some repurposed/recyclable items for a Leprechaun Trap. I found a bunch of fun traps on Pinterest and showed Kinsey to get ideas for ours.
We didn't snag a Leprechaun but he did leave a special note on the tape trap! Kinsey thought it was so cute and small. This genius idea was found here. My dang pen started running out on me so disregard the crappy scrawls at the bottom. And yes, O'Malley is the name of our Leprechaun, it's the only Irish mane I could think of courtesy of The Aristocats haha.
When Courtney posted this St Patrick's Day treasure hunt printable I was so excited! Coincidentally Kinsey's 6-week earrings mark was on St Patrick's Day and a pair of lucky clover earrings was the perfect prize.
Fun with Food//
Shamrock shaped green waffles because I heart my waffle maker.Lucky Charms magic bars recipe here. I liked them much better after the first day, the flavors melded together and became nice and chewy.
We had white cheddar mac n cheese so naturally I added green food coloring and peas and we were good for dinner!
