March starts this weekend! I feel like shouting it out in ALL CAPS and bold. Why? It means that old man winter’s time is limited. February has brought a few snowstorms and I’m done. I know all the New Englanders out there are rolling their eyes and thinking Maryland got off easy this year. And I agree, it wasn’t nearly as bad as some of the recent years have been. But I’m the kind of girl that runs the space heater under her desk in the Summer. Cold is best in small doses.
But before the warmth of spring can really come, we’ve got to get through March. Even though March is a bit of a trickster with weather (it could snow, it could be in the 70s…who knows?) the most notorious trickster of the month is always that pesky little Leprechaun that comes on March 17th. The kids’ previous school used to have a bit of a Leprechaun problem come March, leaving shamrocks and gold pieces everywhere. We never had much of a Leprechaun infestation, but I thought it would be fun to check out some fun (and easy) crafts and treats to celebrate the day.
This rainbow ice water from Happy Hooligans is number one on my list for a reason. It takes items you’ve probably got on hand already, only takes about 5 minutes of actual work, and looks so fun! Plus, I’ll try just about anything to help get my kids to drink more water.
Aren’t these lucky penny letters from Made by Marzipan just adorable? T just loves coins, so she would go crazy not only making this, but also admiring all those shiny pennies
I love any reason to make a sweet treat. And Carolyn’s Homework makes these Vanilla Wafer Leprechaun Treats look so simple. Plus, that little hint of mint would just be so refreshing after a meal, no?
I’ve seen this technique on at least half a dozen sharpie coffee mug tutorials. But A Dream Crafter uses it in a fun and fresh way with a simple Polka Dot Banner perfect for St. Patrick’s Day
Have pretty much no time to decorate, but want to add some festivity for the day? Take some frames you’ve already got on hand and back them with some green scrap paper and shamrock punch-outs. You could even make it easier by finding some foam stickers and just plopping them right on the glass. Big impact, little effort (originally found on Simply Southern Mom)
