St. Patrick’s Day Activities and Crafts
Since I was a young girl, St. Patrick’s day has always been my jam! There’s just something about this holiday I can’t ever seem to get enough of.
Maybe it’s the excitement about wearing green while pinching others not wearing green, or perhaps it’s our family tradition of homemade reuben sandwiches. Either way, I absolutely love celebrating St. Patrick’s day each year!
I definitely had a blast putting together this awesome list of goodies and I’m so excited to share all of these St. Patrick’s day activities, crafts, and printables with you! Check them out!
