St. Patrick’s Day is just over a week away. I confess, we’ve done exactly zero holiday related crafts lately. In hopes of remedying that, I thought I’d look for a bit of inspiration from past St. Patrick’s Day kids crafts we’re completed and other ideas shared around the internet that I would like to try.
Stamped Shamrocks – these were a lot of fun to make and all you need are some green paint & a green pepper (okay, really any color pepper will work but green seems best for St. Patrick’s Day related art).
Rainbow Ribbon Shakers – a fun, inexpensive craft created using a toilet paper tube. This idea was shared last week on A Parenting Production and looks like a lot of fun for young kids.
Shamrock Crystals – I need to go buy some Borax so we can finally try this tutorial by Housing a Forest. I bet Dylan would enjoy growing his own crystals plus it’s science + art in one thus equaling a bit of education snuck in. 😉
Shamrock Handprints – it’s fun looking back and seeing how tiny Dylan’s hands were when we created the shamrock handprint plaque. I plan to make one with Elise next year (4 month old hands are a bit too tricky to work with).
Cereal Rainbows – a good excuse to indulge in a sugar kids’ cereal. Your child can accomplish a craft and work on eye & hand coordination with this project from Growing A Jeweled Rose.
“Stained Glass” Shamrocks – use colored tissue paper to make these beautiful pieces of art. They are great for any age – even toddlers.
