A Wee Bit O’ Irish Fun

The Munkees awoke yesterday to a morning of St. Patrick’s Day fun… (mostly attributed to Pinterest — for ideas and inspiration.)

First, Pot O’ Golds. Similar to this but with peanut butter cups and a personalized, hand-drawn/written card attached for each of them. They were disassembled and consumed before I thought to take a picture. 😛

Next, “When I feel lucky…” Leprechaun cards. I made one for each member of the family. All they had to do was draw in his face, attach his whiskers and fill in the blank. Well, and read them aloud as we went around the table. Here’s Mouse’s…

Next: St. Patrick’s Day BINGO! I found this downloadable and printed the black & white version and hand colored in 4 sets…because I’m insane crafty like that. I purchased a few small gifts, that I wrapped, and a sheet of temporary tattoos as prizes. This was a monster hit! It went over so well that I am going to laminate their sheets and the call pieces to use again next year. This idea will more than likely resurface for a birthday party or two…or three…later this year. (I am insane and a glutton for punishment.)

While calling out BINGO pieces, I was also rolling out dough, cutting & baking cookies. These were not just any cookies mind you, but Bailey’s Irish Cream Cookies. Oh yes, *THOSE* cookies. Now, considering these are boozy treats, I needed to make an entirely second batch of Sugar Cookies for the munkees (BECAUSE I AM INSANE SUCH A GREAT MOM. Ha.) I did replace their filling with the Mint Layer portion of a brownie recipe I had used previously. DeLish. For serious.

After all of our home festivities, we headed out to a fundraising event featuring none other than Pipe & Drum.

Romeo & I had a Smithwick’s

The Munkees had custom flavored sodas.

A fantabulous St. Patty’s Day was had by all.

Sláinte!
