Darci McMeekin shares activities that are perfect for toddlers, preschoolers, and younger elementary aged kids to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

My husband is from Ireland so we always celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with our Irish named daughters Aoife (EE-fa) and Fiona. They loved these crafts, especially the snack!
