St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it. It was never a holiday I celebrated until I had children. Seeing the excitement my kids had over a little leprechaun made this day even more enjoyable. If you want to have some fun with the leprechaun, we have some great ideas that are easy to do.

Here are 10 leprechaun tricks to play on kids for St. Patrick’s Day.

May sound weird, but adding some drops of food coloring into the jug of milk or into their cups, can make morning time lots of fun.

There are some complicated ones and basic ones, but this one from Who Arted, is my absolute favorite DIY!
