Today is St Patrick’s Day and that always seems a great time for a celebration.
Whatever the occasion, if you are planning your own celebration, the internet is a great resource for recipes, craft ideas and almost anything you need to make your event go with a swing. St Patrick’s Day is no exception.
We’ve trawled the net for some of the top St Patrick’s Day resources and suggest you make the most of the day when Green means fun.
This US-based site is aimed at kids but there is plenty to entertain the bigger kids amongst us. There are some useful stats and facts about St Patrick himself alongside recipes for stuff like Irish Soda Bread and a traditional Corned Beef Supper. Check out the St Patrick’s day riddles and jokes, St Patrick’s Day Bingo and some crafty ideas, like how to make your own Leprechaun Hat to store your chips in!
Another site aimed at kids but plenty there for creative adults too. From colouring pages to printable bookmarks with a St Patrick’s theme, we think the St Patrick’s Day Origami pages (make your own paper shamrock!) could be a winner here.
