Inhabitots on JustMommies: St. Patrick's Day Fun for Kids - Crafts, Recipes And Fashion

By Inhabitots

St. Patrick's Day is this Saturday, and we've got plenty of fun ways to commemorate the holiday with your kids. If your tyke typically isn't a fan of eating anything green, the festive holiday is the perfect time to serve him veggies on the sly with this emerald-hued vegan shamrock smoothie. Don't worry, we'll never tell that the recipe includes spinach! Fancy catching a leprechaun of your very own? You're in luck, because this quick and easy tutorial will tell you how to craft a St. Patrick's Day leprechaun trap. All that crafting is sure to work up an appetite, so wrangle your little sous chefs and head to the kitchen to whip up a batch of creamy vegan baked potato soup with our yummy recipe. If soup's not on your kiddo's menu, try your hand at one of these five healthy shamrock and rainbow meals for special St. Patrick's Day dining. And when it's snack time, keep the green food theme going by making some organic sweet pickles with your children. Does your little one want to dress the part as well? This hand-knit classic Irish Aran sweater is sweet and cozy for every day of the year, as are these gorgeous handmade linen and wool felt shoes by LaLaShoes, which come in a variety of vibrant colors including green. When it's lights out, tuck up your little lucky charm in these adorable green clover, organic cotton pajamas for sweet slumber. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
