St. Patrick's Day Kids Crafts

St. Patrick’s Day Kids Crafts

March 9, 2015 Sarah Coggins

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.

St. Patrick's Day Kids Crafts

Stamped Shamrocksthese 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 Handprint

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.

    Oh too cute! I might have to do the pepper ones with the kids.

      Oh you should! Dylan loved it. Just don't be cheap like me - use the full pepper. LOL

    I love these. I want to do this for sure with the boys.

    I love the pepper one! I've always wanted to do some fruit stamping! It's just so neat - love how that one turns out like a shamrock!
