In this post, you will find a fun family activity you can do to get your kids excited for St. Patrick’s Day.
It’s called, “You’ve been Pinched!” It’s similar to “You’ve been Boo-ed” poem during Halloween time. Here’s the instruction on how to do it.

1. Make Treats
It doesn’t have to be glamorous at all. This is what I would do. Get the cheap gold chocolate coins from the store or online. Put them in a decorative bag (or a Ziploc and tie it up with a ribbon and cut off the top) or whatever you want to do and call it good.
2. Print out the Free Printable
You will find the link at the bottom.
3. Deliver them to your friends in secret.
You can simply set the treats and the printable at the doorstep and walk away.
Nothing is better than watching the people smile (or a questionable look, ha!) when they recover the secret surprise on their porch.
OR… you can do this in a more exciting way: doorbell ditching. (Your tween kids would have a blast doing this) Some of my most favorite memories from my teen years were doorbell ditching. Some were included with toilet papers and some were very simple, and one of them even ended up with a random, fun peanut butter fight. No matter what happens, you make memories. 🙂
There are countless benefits of doing activities with family. One of them is that the parents will create a stronger emotional bond with their children. Especially when you’re serving others.
If you don’t have google doc then go ahead fill out your email and I’ll send it to you right in your inbox!! 🙂 Enjoy!
What was your favorite St. Patrick’s activity you did with your family or friends?
All activities here are activities I feel are safe for my own children. As your child’s parents/guardians, you will need to decide what you feel is safe for your family. I always encourage contacting your child’s pediatrician for guidance if you are not sure about the safety/age appropriateness of an activity. All activities on this blog are intended to be performed with adult supervision. Appropriate and reasonable caution should be used when activities call for the use of materials that could potentially be harmful, such as scissors, or items that could present a choking risk (small items), or a drowning risk (water activities), and with introducing a new food/ingredient to a child (allergies). Observe caution and safety at all times. The author and blog disclaim liability for any damage, mishap, or injury that may occur from engaging in any of these activities on this blog.
