D-I-Y St. Patrick's Day Celebration Inside the Comforts Of Your Hilton Head Home
We're just a few months into 2020, and so much ruckus has already happened around the world. Indeed, the COVID-19 super-virus has everyone at their wit's end. We're talking about social distancing, supplies running out, and uncontained panic surrounding all of us. Parties, celebrations, and events worldwide have been canceled one by one, including the HHI St. Patrick's Day Parade, which was supposed to happen tomorrow.
And if you're thinking about giving up big gatherings and parties for a while, good on you! Being on a self-initiated quarantine will be the best way to stop the virus from spreading, and following government guidelines will help bring the pandemic situation to an end much faster!
Shake those blues away by trying these D-I-Y St. Patrick's Day activities, which you can do inside the comforts of your own home. It might not be a grand parade, but it can still uplift our spirits and pay homage to the Irish traditions!
Play Irish Music For the Rest of the Day
Irish traditional music is indeed a unique and festive type of folk music. It might even be the kind of jam you'll need to get you through the day, especially on St. Patrick's Day! Create a playlist of the best Irish songs, both traditional and current, and include songs from popular artists who are Irish! Did you know that U2, The Cranberries, Snow Patrol, Enya, and Hozier are all Irish? Well, now that you do, music options will be truly endless!
Cook an Irish-inspired Meal
Staying at home to cook is probably the cheapest way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, especially since most Irish dishes aren't too complicated to make! Create your versions of popular traditional Irish food, like Irish stew, Reuben sandwiches, and a Cabbage Casserole! Not a fan of cooking? Try your hand at baking Irish goodies instead! Let your kids help you out with decorating the cookies for some quality bonding!
Decorate your home with St. Patrick's Day craft
Jazz up your home with some greens and shamrocks for St. Paddy's Day! Not only will it light up your mood for the rest of the day, but it will also be a great way to entertain your kids, especially if you do the cut-outs and glittering yourself! Start with some lucky banners, rainbow pot of gold wreaths, or some St. Patrick's Day-inspired table centerpieces decorated in green mason jars (put in some flowers for an instant Spring effect!)!
Set Up a St. Paddy's Scavenger Hunt Inside Your Home
Do you want to keep your kids busy while you work through some household chores this St. Patrick's Day? Set up a scavenger hunt inside your home! Hide some D-I-Y gold coins around the house, or use printable shamrocks with clues and hide it in corresponding places. Prepare a small treat or treasure for the winner at the end of the hunt!
Make Your Own Green Beer
Yes, parents, you deserve a St. Patrick's Day treat, too! Help yourself to some ice-cold beer (or two!), and make it green for your Irish brothers and sisters! Use a light-colored beer, like a pilsner or pale ale, and transfer it to a pint glass or mug. Add 3-5 drops of green food coloring to your beer, and cheers to a busy, wonderful evening!
