St Patrick's Day Roundup-free printables

Every year on St Patrick's Day I make a green dinner for my family. I always have fun putting together an all green and white table, dinner and dessert. Starting last year I surprised the kids with some fun green treats at breakfast. I loved searching for fun, cheap, green things that would excite them. The older kids got green frisbees, candy, gum, pop and bubbles. The baby got green baby food and a new green sippy cup!

I loved how surprised they were and I want to do it again but I've had a hard time finding different green items this year. I've searched the internet, Pinterest and my favorite blogs for some great inspiration. I thought I would share some of my favorite ideas for treats, gifts and free printables.

You can get this free "Kiss me I'm Irish" printable tag at Brown Paper Packages. This might make a fun hubby gift too. Maybe the start of a green themed date? Love how Kierste inked the edge of the tag and backed it with such cute cardstock.

This is the St Patrick's subway art I choose to put up in my home this year. I love the sentiments and fonts! Go to It Works for Bobbi! and become a follower and you can download it for free.

it is what it is has an adorable idea for rainbow themed St. Patrick's Day treats. (This is what I am doing for my kiddos!) Check out it is what it is for the free printable topper!

green food ideas
I adore this St. Patrick's Day breakfast idea because it's super simple and super cute. I am planning on incorporating this with the previous idea (rainbow theme for breakfast)! Check out thoughtfully simple for additional pictures and a free printable.

St. Patricks Day Free Party Printables
This is my favorite free St. Patricks day printable collection! Such fun designs and options. You can download these at Living Locurto, designed by Rebekah from A Blissful Nest!

One of my newest favorite blogs The Dating Divas has a great idea for telling your spouse or kids how lucky you are to have them in your life. Such a thoughtful gift! Free printables available at The Dating Diva's.

I love this Leprechaun Crunch recipe from Itsy Bitsy Paper! What a fun and unique treat! I also love that you could substitute any green candies or sprinkles you have hanging around home!.

I love mint and chocolate and I'm having a serious craving for this Sugar Free Shamrock Shake from A Night Owl. I'm always on the lookout for sugar free treats since we have family members who are diabetic! Don't forget the green stripey straw-simply adorable!

Shamrock Paint Chip Banner
I love this paint chip banner by A Little Something in the Meantime. Love the different hues of green and super cheap too!

Fit Stylish Crafty and Happy has a super healthy, super easy, super yummy green fruit kabob. I have made a green fruit salad before but I think these green fruit kabobs may show up at our St. Patrick's Day Dinner!

While on the topic of fruit, don't you love this rainbow of fruit with banana and marshmallow clouds. I was thinking I might use my favorite fruit dip for clouds. Either way, totally yummy and nutritious! Check out more kids party ideas at Gluesticks, Gluesticks.

St. Patricks Day Oreos
See Vanessa Craft gave me an idea that I want to do for the ladies I visit every month. You see, I'm kinda famous for my chocolate dipped Oreos (not really, but let's pretend). I love this printable tag and the chocolate dipped Oreos that go along with it.

Simple as That shows how to make a Clover Leaf Lei. Great idea for keeping the kid's entertained. St. Paddy's is on a Saturday this year!

Hope these awesome bloggers inspire you too! Check them out and Luck O' The Irish To Ya!

Hi Christina! Our leprechaun always brings us a cute T-shirt that is mostly green, green gum, and little baggies of any of the wrapped, green candies out of the bulk bins at WinCo. Not a St. Patrick's day shirt, but just a cute one off the $3.50 table at WalMart or Target. I found it ended up being cheaper than a bunch of individual prizes, but always needed in the spring. There is always a trail of shamrocks and gold on the floor from the stairs to the "Leprechaun Table".
