I have literally been talking about how much I love these printables all weekend. A few weeks back I had the idea to make itty bitty notes to leave around the house from the mysterious little leprechauns that sneak around on St. Patrick’s Day! I knew I wanted to partner with someone awesome on these notes and after meeting Kate from Striped Cat Studio at Alt Summit and falling head over heels for her hand lettering and watercolor, I recruited her and she rocked it OUT! The idea is to leave these free printable notes (Download them HERE!) around the house with little treats and a magnifying glass for easy reading (or really, because it’s just more fun that way!) on St. Patty’s Day. The kids (and adults, right?!) will have a total blast trying to spot the notes throughout the day!
You can pick up plastic magnifying glasses at your local party store (in the favor aisle) or on Amazon (work that Prime shipping!) here. You can read the notes without the help, but you know you want to get them anyway! Now keep reading for a few ideas on the treats and trinkets to pair them with!
Breakfast time, and note number one, calls for Lucky Charms! Adults, don’t act like you wouldn’t like this too! These aren’t just for the kids, you know…
Make your own pots of gold (this tutorial is coming on Wednesday, so check back!) and fill them with tiny sweets in their lunch.
A rainbow of candy or crayons for after-school fun!
And how about a bed covered in shamrocks with a perfectly Irish goodnight story for the little ones, or a dinner table sprinkled with lucky clovers instead!

A huge, confetti-throwing thank you to Kate for working her lucky magic on these printables! Be sure to check out all her awesomeness on her blog right here. (I’m a particularly huge fan of her Dog Stalking column. I’ve made it my mission to get Bella on there!)
