Kids love holidays! St. Patrick’s Day 2020 offers quite a few opportunities for fun, from planning your own party to doing themed crafts or heading out to a special event. Plan a few St. Patrick’s Day 2020 events with your family this March. Here are some local options for St. Patty’s Day fun.
All Ages Clay: Leprechaun Door
Friday, March 6, 2020; 6 – 8 p.m.
Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio in Springfield, PA is hosting a special event where kids get to work with clay to create a special keepsake. The leprechaun door becomes a lovely accent for your garden or your home’s St. Patrick’s Day holiday décor. Registration is required at $30 per person. No refunds. Clay must be picked up after the fact and may be painted at that time free of charge.
Leprechaun Trap Workshop
Saturday, March 7, 2020; 9:30 a.m. / 1:30 p.m.
I Heart Art Workshop in Spring City, PA is hosting a fun and memorable Leprechaun Trap Workshop. This St. Patrick’s Day event starts with a story and features some “lucky” crafts—one of which is a leprechaun trap to help kids lure a leprechaun into getting caught in their quest for gold. This event is for ages 3-10 and costs $35 per child with a 10% sibling discount.
Pot of Gold Leprechaun Handprints Workshop
Saturday, March 7, 2020; 10 – 11:30 a.m.
Create a meaningful piece of art with your kids that you’ll cherish forever at this sweet St. Patrick’s event at Color Me Mine Lehigh Valley (Bethlehem). The leprechaun handprints capture your kids’ handprints at their current size and freeze them in time on a personalized St. Patrick’s keepsake plate or platter. Choose from 10”, 12”, or 15” at $28, $34, or $45, respectively. Kids then can work on coloring pages while adults add the finishing touches.

The Artsy Palette in Phillipsburg, NJ will host a St. Patrick’s Day themed paint party with two designs to consider—an Irish puppy or an Irish owl. This event is about an hour from us but would be well worth it at just $12 per child!

Leprechaun Story Time

Friday, March 20 – Sunday, March 22, 2020; 11 a.m.
My kids still talk about this event! Last year we headed over to the Peppermint Stick Candy Store to start the Boyertown Leprechaun Hunt and walked all around town to find the clues and answer the questions. At the end, we enjoyed a little treat at the candy / ice cream shoppe and got the girls’ faces painted with Irish unicorns. There’s even a mini leprechaun hunt next to their store, but even my then-three-year-old absolutely loved the leprechaun hunt and still talks about it. This is the 3rd annual Leprechaun Hunt at the Peppermint Stick Candy Store. Don’t miss the photobooth, green hot chocolate, and more.
