  • Dress your child up for St. Patrick’s Day with this leprechaun hat made from an old ice cream container.
  • Kiss the Blarney Stone! Legend says that anyone who kisses the Blarney Stone of Ireland will be blessed with eloquence. Make your own kissed Blarney Stone.
  • Give your wee little one a pot of gold on March 17th. This simple recipe uses gelatin to make cubes of “gold” and a hollowed out lime as the pot.
