7 Eco-friendly Activities to Enjoy With the Kiddos

Amidst discussions of leprechauns and pots of gold at the end of rainbows, this Irish holiday is a great time teach young ones about what it means to be green. Try talking with them about the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, while doing a craft or another one of these fun, eco-friendly activities we’ve found for you from some awesomely crafty bloggers:

1. St. Patrick’s Day Magic Vases

Such a fun and festive way to make use of glass jars around the house! And filling them with fresh flowers is a great way to add even more lively and vibrant colors to your St. Patrick's Day.
