Wasn't it just Valentine's Day??

Next up...St. Patty's Day!

I always try to find little ways to celebrate Saint Patrick's day with my family. Especially because they look forward to it and someday soon they will be teenagers that are too "school for cool."
We usually start with Lucky Charms or green pancakes for breakfast and if it's on a school day
I pack a completely green lunch...
Spinach wrap sandwiches
Trader Joe's Snap Pea Crisp
Kiwi or green apples
Green Gatorade
Shamrock sugar cookie

For the shenanigans...
Add  a few drops of green food coloring to the toilet water (for boys)
Sprinkle a trail of green glitter (for girls)
Hide a bag of gold chocolate coins and leave clues as to their whereabouts.
I like to stir things up and turn a few things upside down in their rooms (blame it on the leprechauns!)
It doesn't take much but, it's fun and kids look forward to these silly traditions.
