friday five links worth a clickWhether or not you have big plans for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, we have a Pinterest board with lots of luck o’ the Irish green-spiration. Everything from crafts to food to decor. But, don’t worry, we’ve saved you some time and have our top five St. Patrick’s Day Pins that you can throw together this weekend.

1. Easy Shamrock Hats – from paper plates!

2. Start a new tradition with Hand Print Shamrocks.

3. A dice and draw game: Roll-a-Leprechaun.

4. St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt, including free printables with clues ready to go.

5. And not just because I am obsessed with the cereal: Lucky Charms Magic Munch. And here’s pin number 6 for good measure: St. Patrick’s Day breakfast with Lucky Charms and green milk.

    I love the idea of the scavenger hunt, such a fun thing for kids. When we were little, my Mom always dyed our milk green. Even as we got older, we had green milk with dinner.

    Great crafts! I just saw another hunt for younger children where they follow the rainbow ribbon to the pot of gold.

    I’d have never thought of the Shamrock hands idea. We have day care here that my daughter does for all toddlers, just over one. So NEXT year we will need LOTS of projects. Will bookmark this! thank you!

    These ideas are adorable. My favorite must be the hand print shamrocks. Parents are able to remember how small those hands once where.
