St. Patrick's Day Party!

By: Amberly Asay

St. Patrick's Day can be a really fun holiday.  It can be especially fun if you throw a party for all of your friends!  Have them dress up in their favorite green outfits and even provide face paint to paint four leaf clovers on their face. When everyone shows up you can make a St. Patrick's Day Photo Booth.

When it gets to the food time, we are in the business of throwing an all green party!  Food coloring is going to be your best friend. Here are suggestions for snack food that is naturally or artificially green:
  • Guacamole and chips (you can sometimes find green tortilla chips as well)
  • Green M&M's
  • Cupcakes or cookies dyed green or with green icing
  • Jell-O squares or shamrocks
  • Green veggie dip with bell peppers, broccoli and celery
  • Grinch drink- green sherbet mixed with Sprite or 7 Up 
Fun games to play

A game of luck
The gist of this game is that everyone has to bring some article that brings him/her luck.  Items you're sure to see are shamrocks, horseshoes, dirty socks and maybe even a rabbit foot. It should be very interesting to see what people bring. Award the winner with a wish bone or lucky object. 

A pot of gold
Pin the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  This is similar to pin the tail on the donkey. Make a rainbow and pin it up on your wall or door.  Give the person a pot of gold and blind fold them.  Spin them around until they are dizzy and see if they can pin the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Rainbow friendship bracelet
You can't have a friend party without making friendship bracelets.  Gather together some yarn and beads that are every color of the rainbow.  Let your friends make matching rainbow bracelets to prove your friendship.

After you have taken pictures, stuffed yourself full and played lots of fun games, it is time to cozy on up with one of your favorite St. Patrick's Day movies.
