Inside: Top St Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt ideas you need to try.
So, let’s talk about St. Patrick’s day. Personally, this is one of the most underrated holidays for me, most likely because I myself am very Irish, but it really does not get the hype that it deserves.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas probably more than the average person. But I love St. Patty’s Day in a different way. It has such a playful, fun energy to it, and it falls right around the time of the year when there aren’t very many holidays to celebrate, so it bridges that gap.
The most popular thing to do on St. Patricks Day is to get hammered, but if you have little kids…that isn’t really an option. But hey, there are still so many awesome and fun things you can do to celebrate…like a St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt! I have pulled together some of the cutest St. Patty’s day printables for you to choose from. You’ll love these!
