I am doing my St Patrick’s Day planning now so thought that I would share this post a few weeks early just in case there are any of you who would like to do the same!

Whether you are Irish or not, this is such a fun, festive day to celebrate with the kids and I have been lucky enough to find some gems in terms of arts and crafts for the kids as well as delicious food, that I am just going to HAVE to make!! And to top it all off, green is my favourite colour πŸ™‚
