  • Lucky Charms beat-the-clock challenge. The objective is to get as many lucky charm marshmallows as you can from one bowl into another.
  • Divide the party up into multiple times for a leprechaun makeover challenge.

St. Patrick’s Day snacks and appetizers

A lot of us focus on Guinness and drinks. St. Patrick’s Day is all for that but realistically, party people are going to want food as well. You can go store-bought with some green snacks or prepare some appetizers. Don’t cook up a meal excessively heavy. Try to stick with traditional foods from Ireland or items in smaller portion sizes.

  • Traditional Irish bread stained green with food coloring.
  • Shamrock cupcakes.
  • Homemade potato bites.
  • Arugula pesto sauce to spread on bread bites.
