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.

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!
