This Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, which means you and your little ones can spend time making crafts that relate to this green celebration even if you are not Irish! Step2 was inspired by cleverness of Spoonful, All Kids Network, That What Che Said, and Mess for Less when it came to creating crafts for this shamrock holiday.
Wee-Leprechaun: The Leprechaun is an iconic symbol of St. Patrick’s Day. Help your kids make little leprechauns and let their imaginations run wild as they create them with paint, pipe cleaners, toilet paper tubes, markers, and glue. Sounds like a lucky party! If you are looking for a craft project with fewer materials, try making a leprechaun from construction paper, paper plates, and markers!
Fruit Loops Pot-O-Gold: At the end of every rainbow is a pot of gold. At the end of this rainbow is Fruit Loops! Grab a box of fruit loops, paper, and glue. Make a rainbow full of fun with this colorful cereal.
Shamrock Pretzel Bites: Besides leprechauns, shamrocks are also a common symbol of St. Patrick’s Day. An easy and yummy way to create them is with small pretzels, Hershey Kisses, and green M&Ms. This treat is festive and delicious for the whole family!
Pot of Gold: To collect all the gold from a lucky day of crafts, it is important to create a pot of gold. The main materials for this project are cardboard buckets, green paint, glue, and paper grass. You can even place your Shamrock Pretzel Bites or Wee-Leprechaun inside this pot and give it to a friend as a gift on St. Patrick’s Day. Being kind always brings good luck!
How will you be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with your children? May the luck of the Irish be with you all weekend :).
