Make time for a little St. Patrick’s Day fun with a Shamrock Shake and this cute Shake Your Shamrock St. Patrick’s Day coloring page.
Woohoo! St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and I’m so excited! Do you want to know why? Two words. Shamrock Shakes. Yep, those minty shakes are one of my favorite things and you can only get them for a limited time each year so I make sure to get my fill in the few short weeks they are around. I know I’m not alone because when I made a trip to McDonald’s on February 7th (that’s the day they became available in stores!) I wasn’t the only one in line who was ready to get their Shamrock Shake on.
I did have a little trouble making up my mind because this year they’ve added new Shamrock Chocolate Madness beverages with a chocolaty flavor. You have no idea how happy that makes me. Chocolaty flavor mixed with mint is one of my favorite combinations, add some whipped topping and you’ve made the Chocolate Shamrock Shake of my dreams. They even have a Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe! Not into cold beverages? Have no fear! McDonald’s is letting you hot drink lovers get in on the St. Patrick’s Day fun too with their new Shamrock Hot Chocolate and Shamrock Mocha.
I feel like someone has figured me out and is giving me a big thumbs up for taking advantage of the limited amount of time that the Shamrock Shake and it’s fellow St. Patrick’s Day drinks are in stores because this year McDonald’s has a rewards program where you can buy 5 McCafe drinks and get one free! Keep in mind the purchase of the 5th drink and free drink must be separate sales transactions. via the McDonald’s app! That’s ok with me because I know I’ll be in there at least 5 more times before Shamrock Shakes disappear for the year. How else am I going to try all of the new varieties?!
The fun doesn’t stop there! I’ve got this cute “Shake Your Shamrock” coloring page DOWNLOAD HERE to go along with your Shamrock Shake. I love doing coloring pages. I can pull one out and shut out everything else for just a little while as I color it all in. Let’s face it I don’t get that much time to myself as a mom of two kids so I have to take my “me time” where I can get it. I usually keep a page or two and some colored pencils in my car and when I find myself with a little break in between running the kids one place or another I usually stop somewhere, grab a coffee, put my earbuds in, and color while I drink it. For the next month or so it will be a toss up between a Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe or a Shamrock Shake…maybe I could start with a shake and grab a Shamrock Mocha to warm me up before I leave ;).
Make a little time for yourself and stop by McDonald’s to grab a Shamrock Shake or one of the McCafe Shamrock Chocolate Madness drinks before they disappear for another year. If you stop in during the week of March 11th-17th you can give back because McDonald’s will donate 25 cents to Ronald McDonald House Charities® for every Shamrock Chocolate Madness product sold!
