Luck of the Irish Activity


Today I want to share a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity in which the entire family can participate. It’s a Luck of the Irish gratitude activity.

First, find a pot or bowl and decorate it like a pot. This one is from the dollar store and was a perfect size.

Throughout the week or weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, leave little sheets of paper for your family to write down why they believe they are lucky.

I have some ready-made for you ==>I am so lucky because. All you need to do is print and cut.



The completed slips of paper go into the pot, unread until St. Patrick’s Day.  



Then they are shared with the family at breakfast or dinner or whenever. Those are my Shamrock Cupcakes in the background of this photo.



Does your family celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? What do you do?

  1. This is such a cute idea! I think it is so great you did messages of gratitude!

  2. Very cool. And meaningful.
    We don’t usually celebrate because we’re not at all Irish, but I say who cares on that one?
    It’s a holiday with meaning to many, and we seem to celebrate a lot of holidays.
