We decided to take a simple route for our St Patrick’s Day celebration last year since we were expecting our 3rd child & I was exhausted. Our week consisted of handprint crafts, baking, and a different Irish meal each night.

The kids loved the St Patrick’s Day craft and the Shamrock Sugar Cookies while Husband and I really enjoyed eating traditional Irish fare. If you would like to try out our super simple handprint shamrock craft, read on!
