One of my favorite holidays is Saint Patrick’s Day. I love that you can do as little or as much as you want and it is absolutely perfect! There is no stress or pressure like on some of the other holidays. That being said, here are some of my favorite Saint Patrick’s Day ideas, crafts, and traditions.

  1. Green food coloring: This is an absolute MUST for this holiday. You can use it for so many different things. We use it to color our milk, make green pancakes or any other food, and sometimes to color our toilet water green.
  2. Lucky blocks from Heartfelt Wall Hangings: Heartfelt Wall Hangings has SO many adorable crafts at amazing prices. Snag these LUCKY blocks in a kit for just $5.50!
  3. The Lucky Leprechaun Hunt: Print this hunt or make your own! It’s super easy and you can do it with stuff you already have at your house with absolutely no preparation (my favorite) or hide the items for them to find beforehand.
  4. The Night Before Saint Patrick’s Day: We absolutely love The Night Before books and this one is just as good as the rest! It’s a must to read the night before.
  5. Rainbow & Pot of Gold craft: Another easy craft that is crazy cute. One of the amazing preschool teachers at my daughter’s school does this with her class and they LOVE it. Frankly, so do I. 
  6. Saint Patrick’s Day Would You Rather: Such a fun, silly way to enjoy the holiday. Answer questions like Would you rather catch a leprechaun or have a pet unicorn? Plus, it’s a FREE download.
  7. Green treats: Our family leprechaun always leaves a few green treats at our house. Usually a can of Sprite and some kind of green candy. If you don’t want sugar you can do a green apple and colored milk or something similar.
  8. Silly Leprechaun Tricks: When the leprechaun visits our house he plays silly tricks. They are never harmful or malicious and they are always easily cleaned up. Usually just things like leaving all the cupboard doors open, switching which drawer pants and socks are in, or turning couch cushions upside down. My kids think this is hilarious.
  9. Green Hair Spray: If you want to add a little extra green to your ensemble you can grab some green hair spray. Of course I grabbed it when it was on clearance after Halloween. That’s just how I roll.
  10. Set a Leprechaun trap: Who DOESN’T want to catch that silly leprechaun? It’s so fun to set a trap to see if you can catch that pesky little guy. We try to lure him in with gold or treats with some kind of spring to trap him when he picks them up. Sadly, we’ve had no luck so far. But that doesn’t mean we won’t keep trying!

I love September. It means Fall is beginning. The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are turning, and there is a crispness in the air. It’s easily one of my favorite month’s of the year.

Save Big on Eating Out With Groupon!

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016

Groupon

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

They say a penny saved is a penny earned. Well, I for one am ALL about saving pennies any way that I possibly can! It makes me feel good to not only pay less for things but I am able to teach my kids that they too can save money if they are willing to look for the ways! One way that I have found some SWEET deals is on Groupon!

My family likes to eat out…but hello? Have you really taken a look at your bill when the server brings it over? I think they bring the mints at the same time as the check just to sweeten you up…knowing that when you see the amount due, you won’t have a fit right then and there and demand to wash dishes in lieu of paying…whew. Sorry. Does that just happen to me?

Groupon is the way I have found to keep that amount due at a MUCH better number, one that I can handle and eat my mint with pleasure. One of our favorites is the Lanikai Grill Hawaiian BBQ. I just picked up a Groupon for a buy one get one free meal- my kids LOVE the “candy chicken” and it’s SUCH a great thing to be able to have options other than whatever night on the days I don’t feel like cooking!

Groupon makes it easy to search for the things YOU want to save on. Are you foodies like our family? Are you looking for a pampering present? Looking for a deal from Groupon Goods? Maybe some automotive needs have come up? Whatever it is, Groupon is the place to look.  I have had the best experience with them and they are my “go to” when I am looking to save some pennies!

You can also like Groupon on Facebook and follow Groupon on Twitter so you will know about any extra deals going on. Yes, they really do happen!

Give Groupon a try, you will NOT be disappointed…and your pocketbook will thank you!
