A Simple Way to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Kids

I really believe in traditions, but it seems that it gets harder and harder to honor them with the breakneck pace of our lives.

But I want to do something simple for St. Patty’s day.  We have Irish blood in us.

So I went to my local grocery store and picked up a bunch of golden coins.  Tonight we’re going to hide them in our and let the children find them. Then as they are gorging themselves with chocolate, they can tell us one reason why they feel rich.

Then we’re going to watch about ten minutes of River Dance .

Afterwards, we’ll let the kids have a little dancing competition.  I’ll tell you how it all goes tomorrow!
