Create Special Notes
One of the best gifts that anyone can receive is a personalized note or card from a loved one. This St. Patrick’s Day, consider crafting special notes together with your grandchildren. You can work together to tell the important people in your life how lucky you are to have them! Set up your extra large TV trays and lay out the crafting supplies needed to decorate the cards. Make sure you supply pre-cut shamrocks, gold glitter, rainbow colors, and any other supplies that help to create your lucky theme!
Green Food Taste Test
One fun activity is to make food that is green in color and then set the food items out on your portable table trays for a taste test with your grandchildren. Whether you want to make the food ahead of time, or enjoy teaching them how to bake some different items, we know that you’ll enjoy the time you spend with your grandchildren. At Table-Mate®, some of our favorite green foods that require minimal preparation are: green jello, broccoli, grapes, celery with peanut butter, green peppers, and green apples. If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, then you could try making a Leprechaun Lime Drink, Lime Avocado Hummus, or Pistachio Cream Cheese Cookies.
One of the most fun things for children to do on St.Patrick’s Day is to create a leprechaun trap to try and catch those mischievous creatures! There are no limits to the type of trap that you and your grandchildren can create! If you prefer to follow directions, then you are sure to find many suggestions for building leprechaun traps online. Otherwise, you can let your creativity guide the design and building of the trap. Once you and your grandchildren have decided what you will need to build the trap, set out your portable tray tables with all the supplies and begin construction! For added fun, you can create a few small messes to show evidence that there are leprechauns in your house.
Watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade
While parades are a lot of fun to see in person, sometimes it’s easier to watch them on TV and avoid the hassle of trying to find parking and dealing with large crowds. If you plan on watching the St. Patrick’s Day festivities from the comfort of your home, then make sure that you set out your portable table trays with plenty of delicious Irish food for everyone to enjoy. Irish soda bread is always a favorite, as are gold covered chocolate coins, shepherd’s pie and Irish stew.
Table-Mate® provides the best portable table trays for all of your needs. Whether you want to enjoy dinner on the couch, reading in bed, or crafting cards with your grandchildren, we know that our oversized TV trays will provide the convenience and comfort that you need.
