6. Go green
This year, take the green theme of St.Patrick’s Day a step further and choose the thing you and your children can do together to have a better impact on our environment. It can be anything from planting a tree, switching to cloth napkins, to recycling paper. Pick out whatever your kids like and do it together. If your kids don’t want to plant a tree, don’t force them to do it. You may encourage them, but don’t force. You want to see your kids’ smiles, not angry faces, don’t you?
