A Fun Tradition ~ Green Lunch For St. Patrick’s Day

Green Lunch

I wanted to share this fun idea with you last year – it isn’t a craft, but it is definitely something fun for the kiddos on St. Patrick’s Day.  A few years ago, my friend invited a bunch of friends and their kids over for a green lunch.  It was a fun and simple way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Green Lunch For St. Patrick's Day

So last year while I was visiting family it just happened to be over St. Patrick’s Day, and since I was wanting to get together with all my friends from home anyways,  I decided to invite them all over for a ‘Green Lunch.’  It was so much fun to see what everyone came up with to bring.

Tuna Blossoms

I made yummy turkey taco wraps out of the Spinach Mission Tortillas.  I believe the recipe that I made was on the back of the bag.  They were delicious!  We had broccoli salad, spinach salad, celery and carrots with green ranch of course, kiwi, green jello, apples with green yogurt, and rice krispie treats with green sprinkles.

We also had cupcakes with green frosting we let the kids decorate.  If your really feeling ambitious you could have a green craft ;).

If you are looking for a fun tradition for St. Patrick’s Day, this is perfect. The kids love it, you can get together with friends, and good (green) food. What else do you need?

Happy upcoming St. Patrick’s Day!

What’s in the bottom picture? It looks intriguing!
I love this idea. My son’s preschool has a “Sharing of the Green” feast for St. Patrick’s Day and your post gave me a lot of ideas for what to bring.

The bottom picture was Tuna Blossoms. I’m not exactly sure how they were made because one of my friends brought them and since it was last year…I don’t know who it was. I’ll ask around… :-) But it looks like a slice of white bread tucked into a muffin tin with the tuna filling inside. Really the filling could be anything. Super cute though huh?
