St. Patricks Day: DIY and Recipes

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up on us quick!  I’ve been thinking of some fun and simple ways to celebrate the upcoming holiday with my family, so this week it’s all about St. Patricks Day.  I’m sharing a few favorite recipes and a couple of easy DIY ideas for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.  Check it out below!

Pot of Gold Pudding

First up, we have “Pot of Gold Pudding”.  This is a perfect treat to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your little ones. It may be the one green food you don’t have to beg your kids to eat! It’s super easy to put together and a great opportunity to have your kids join you in the kitchen.  Plus, how cute are those gold sprinkles?

See the this recipe, plus some other delicious St. Patty’s Day recipe ideas (like this McDonald’s Copy-Cat Shamrock Shake, YUM!) from Rachel over at The Everyday Mom Life.

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Garland

I love to decorate for holidays, but to be honest, I usually don’t do much for St. Patrick’s Day.  This DIY St. Patrick’s Day garland by Haeley of Design Improvised may change all of that.  It’s so easy to make and it’s perfect for adding a little St. Patty’s Day touch to your home.  If you love this simple St. Patty’s Day DIY, then click here to see so many more DIY ideas for the holiday by Haeley.

Guinness Shepherd’s Pie

Any recipe inspired by alcohol is a win in my book! 😉  Also, anything with the word “pie” has to be good right?!  It’s a winning combo you guys!  I love a good Shepard’s Pie.  It’s one of the ultimate comfort foods.  I’ve already decided this is what I will be making for dinner on the 17th.

Check out the step-by-step recipe by Denay over at Confetti and Bliss.

DIY Rainbow Jar

This is such a fun hands-on activity for kids and a great opportunity to learn all at the same time!  The best part is, all the materials you need you probably already have around your home.  If you have a little scientist on your hands, then check out the full tutorial here.  For more ideas on how to make learning fun go visit the ladies over at Playdough to Plato for tons of inspo!

Pear Irish Mule

If you are looking for a festive cocktail for St. Patrick’s Day then look no further.  This Pear Irish Mule recipe combines Irish Whiskey with the fresh flavors of pear and ginger to create the ultimate mule for celebrating the Irish holiday!
