St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and it’s the perfect time to explore Irish culture. This guide is here to help you take all of the guesswork out of your prep work with Irish-inspired food, crafts and activities that your kids will love. 

So, what are you waiting for? Don your favorite green duds and start planning your St. Patrick’s Day festivities today. 

The food 

St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is the reason for the holiday and there’s no better way to celebrate the origins of the holiday than by introducing your kids to the culture that inspired it. 

Food is a great gateway into Irish culture. From local spots that serve green treats (and beer) to authentic Irish cuisine you can try at home, there’s plenty of ways to celebrate through food. 

Here are a few Metro Parent posts that feature some of our favorite ideas:  

The fun
