    1. Under A Rainbow

    Decorate the party room to look like it’s located beneath the rainbow. Make rainbow decorations out of construction paper, and place gold coins in plastic pots or leprechaun hats around the room. If you have access to an outdoor space, rent a rainbow parachute for the kids to play with.

    2. All That Glitters Is Gold 

    Throw a party with gold and glitter. Display a rainbow at the entrance of your venue and invite the kids into the “pot of gold.” You could also consider adding unique holiday touches to your decor, such as wreaths, garlands, and Shamrock backdrops.

    3. All Green Celebration

    Have all the children attend the party wearing their best shades of green. Make sure to include lots of green foods and beverages. You can make a unique selfie frame for them to use and take photos in honor of this day that they will never forget.

    4. Craft a Leprechaun Trap

    According to the legend, if you capture a leprechaun, he will lead you to his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Build a leprechaun trap for your kid to keep the magical tale alive in their minds. Remember to leave “dropped” gold coins in the traps and a trail of glitter for the kids to find later to prove that the magical little man came by. Help your kids in making their own traps out of shoe boxes, string, and other small materials. It’s a ton of fun and a great opportunity to showcase their creativity and problem solving skills this celebration.

    5. Gold Hunt Celebration

    Leave little piles of chocolate gold coins scattered about the party, similar to an Easter Egg hunt. Send the children with empty plastic pots or buckle hats to fill in with coins. You could also lead the kids on a scavenger hunt with a large pot of sweets.

    6. Have a Costume Contest

    Wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day is obviously mandatory for the celebration, but why not take it a step further? Invite kids to put on their leprechaun hats and have a friendly competition to see who has the most festive outfit.

    7. Learn How to Stepdance

    Help your kids immerse themselves in the Irish culture by trying something new and exciting. Have a traditional step dancing session and include a coach to teach some Irish dancing to your young ones. They can practice a jig or a classic step dance. Prepare for a celebration of much laughter and action. 

    Decoration Ideas

    8. Irish Flag

    Whether your party is hosted at your house or at an external venue, hanging up an Irish flag is another tradition during this special holiday.

    9. Shamrock Decor

    Cut out shamrocks from construction paper or similar materials. Make and distribute sparkly four leaf clover pins for a little bling. Get the kids to pin them on their baseball caps, lapels, or even on the strap of a bag to symbolize the special day. You could also try draping sparkling clover garlands over the buffet or hang them from the chandelier.

    10. Coasters

    Decorate your coasters symbolically with horseshoes, shamrocks, or phrases like “Happy St. Paddy’s Day” for a special touch to your party that the kids are sure to love.
