Ways To Make St. Patty’s Day Memorable
When high schoolers normally think of St. Patrick’s Day, their minds go to wearing green to avoid getting pinched but usually nothing more. It is time to change attitudes about the holiday once and for all with these fun ideas that the whole family can enjoy.
- Make Green Fruit Kebabs: These fun treats are super green and super healthy too. Chop up granny smith or golden delicious apples, kiwis, and green pears. Toss them in a bowl with some white grapes and slide the fruit on skewers in whichever pattern you choose. Great for parties or even as an everyday snack.

- Make A Felt Shamrock Pin: No green? No problem. Add to whatever attire with this fancy fashion statement. Using three different felt colors, cut out shamrock shapes that are different sizes; large, medium, and small (with the largest being at least 2 inches in diameter). Using green thread, sew the shapes together through the middle. Sew a safety pin on the back. For a trendy touch, sew a large, sparkly green bead on the front, add green glitter glue around the border, or both. Pin the shamrock pin to your shirt, hat, or jacket.
- Go To An Irish Or Celtic Folk Festival: This is a fun way to enjoy the day with the family, and to truly dive into Celtic roots. The Irish Festival at Church Hill is truly an authentic venue. Food, music, games, and more are all around. For more information, please visit www.churchhillirishfestival.com .
- Watch a St. Patrick’s Day Movie: Don’t feel like walking around? Spend the day at home instead and watch a heart-warming St. Patty’s-themed movie. Finnigan’s Rainbow, Leap Year, and Luck Of The Irish are all great movies to watch. In the mood to watch something more creepy? Leprechaun is a solid choice. (Courtesy of cheapisthenewclassy.com)
