Get all the kids together for a fun day of St Paddy’s Day games, activities and treats, host an adults only St. Patrick’s Day party with all your closet friends and family or spend the day out in downtown Indianapolis enjoying all the St. Patrick’s Day events.

St. Patrick’s Day for the Little Ones

St. Patty’s Day is all about the green. You don’t need a pot of gold to throw a stylish St. Patrick’s Day party. Hang green, gold and white streamers all around the house. Replace your regular light bulbs with bright green versions or invest in some shamrock-shaped lights to string around anything in the house. Finish it off with some fun green balloons that can be great party favors for all the kids. Small additions like green beads and green clothes can make the day even more special for little ones.

Keep the green theme alive even in your food choices. Decorate cookies and cupcakes with green clovers, pots of gold or little leprechauns. Green St. Patrick’s Day punch is a fun drink to serve at any St. Patrick’s Day event. Add some green sherbet ice cream to make it an even tastier treat. For dessert, serve green milkshakes or have the kids create their own sundaes. Supply pistachio and mint ice cream with green sprinkles and green M&M’s. Kids will love mixing and matching all the ice cream and toppings to make their own creations. Whatever you do, just remember to keep it green!

The activities for St. Patrick’s Day are endless. What kind of St. Patrick’s Day would it be without a pot of gold search? Make a treasure hunt for all the little ones. You can make it as extravagant as you’d like. Keep it in the house or make it an outdoor, house-to-house scavenger hunt by having the kids collect St. Patrick’s Day items throughout the neighborhood. This is a great activity to get everyone working together and moving around! For a more relaxing activity have the kids construct their own leprechauns. With just a couple paper bags and coloring tools, you’ve got yourself your own lucky charm! Pin the Shamrock on the Leprechaun, St. Patrick’s Pictionary and Find the Gold are just a few more activities that your little ones will love playing at their St. Paddy’s Day party!

For Grown-Up Leprechauns
This is your time to let loose. Enjoy the holiday with your closest friends and family, sipping on your favorite adult beverages. Try some new Irish beers in honor of the day.

So get out your green food coloring and start dyeing everything from mashed potatoes to beer.
