25 St Patrick’s Day Crafts and Recipes


Growing up in Chicago where they dye the river green every St Patrick’s Day, I soon realized everyone is a little Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Even if you have only kissed an Irish man, everyone goes out to celebrate.

Now that I have children that are both Italian and Irish I feel more obligated to make something special each year.

I have included some of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day desserts, St Patrick’s Day crafts, and leprechaun activities from the years past as well as some other St. Patrick Day recipes we thought you would like.
