St. Patrick's Day food

Ham and Cheese roll ups. Take a slice of ham and spread it with your favorite type of cream cheese. When you prepare your cream cheese, it will need to be softened so mix in a few drops of green food coloring and then spread it on the slice of ham. Roll up the slice of ham, pick them up gently, and place them on the child's plate.

Mashed Potatoes can be turned green, as can be vanilla pudding. Turning vanilla pudding green makes it more festive but you need to remember to add it to the milk and turn it green and then dump it into the pudding.

Mini grasshopper pies are excellent for preschoolers, but not too many in this age group enjoy a mint flavor. So why not add a few drops of green food coloring to plain vanilla pudding and put it in those little individual tart shells of chocolate gram crackers. These are small enough to mass-produce and tiny enough for small hands to hold.

Green milk is easy to make, and will be a hit. If you add a bit of vanilla flavoring to it, it makes it special. Of course, you could always add green food coloring to apple juice or serve green cool aide.

St. Patrick's Day games for kids are a perfect addition to a St. Patty's Day party. These St. Patrick's Day games for kids incorporate fun, trivia and some exercise into a fun filled afternoon.
