How to create magic moments for your kids on St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is a lively holiday full of cheers, celebration and of course, plenty of green. Kids tend to enjoy the spirit surrounding the event and parents can make the day even more memorable by creating surprises for their youngsters to find.

St. Patrick's Day has come to be heavily represented by the color green, so when your kids go to sleep on March 16, you should go to work transforming your home into a green haven with St. Patrick's Day decorations. Start by switching out light bulbs around the home for green versions and hang up festive banners or sayings. When your children wake up, they'll find themselves in a St. Paddy's Day wonderland. Embrace the holiday even more by offering up a batch of green pancakes. Spruce up the table with green flowers for St. Paddy's Day like Teleflora's Box of Sunshine gift flowers. This sassy array of sunny yellow roses and green hydrangeas is sure to conjure up feelings of finding a pot of gold amidst a field of clovers.

Next, you can play a game similar to the popular Christmas game, Elf on the Shelf. Instead of hiding an elf, you can pick up a toy leprechaun that you and your family can take turns hiding throughout the day. Children will think it is the holiday magic making the leprechaun move around.

Finish off this festive affair by creating a treasure hunt in the backyard - the final prize being a pot of chocolate gold coins.
