Have an Irish-themed meal
Choose traditional Irish Foods or just choose green foods! Make sure they are foods of interest to your elders. Decorate the room or table with shamrocks or other St. Patrick’s items. Invite others over and make a party of it!
Who doesn’t love Bingo? St. Patrick’s Day bingo boards are available online, or just use regular bingo boards and have small prizes available. Shamrocks. little pots of gold candies, a four leaf clover pin are a few prize ideas.
