St. Patrick's Day 

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner.  I don’t know about you, but I love this “holiday.”  It’s a fun one for me because there are no expectations.  If we forget it, it’s okay–nobody is worse for the wear.  If we celebrate it, EVERYONE in the family has fun.

For me, simple activities are better.  If one of my older kids wants to make it more complicated, they are welcome to do just that. If you like more complicated crafts, you can add any and all flair to these basic ideas and make it your own.

Here’s what I (and some of our followers on periscope) suggest.

One suggestion I would make for the shake is start with 1/8 tsp of peppermint extract and then add to taste!
