St Patrick's Day Crafts and Recipes

Disney Family Fun magazine has tons of great ideas to help you celebrate this fun green holiday. J's favorite color is green so you can only imagine how excited he is for this big day.


Wee Leprechaun: Make-your-own leprechaun! http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/wee-leprechaun-667671/

Make a Festive Bowl-er: Create leprechaun hats by painting and embellishing paper bowls. (p. 34)

Green Stamp: Spread the luck o' the Irish this St. Patrick's Day with a homemade shamrock stamp. Use it to decorate paper place mats, coasters, tablecloths, or anything else your little leprechauns wish to dress in green. http://familyfun.go.com/st-patricks-day/st-patricks-day-crafts-recipes-gallery-848733/#Green%20Stamp;1
