With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I pulled together some our favorite St. Patricks Day Crafts for kids to give you some ideas of things to make with your little ones!
Pot of Gold
To make these adorable pots of gold, paint stripes onto your child’s hand – purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red. Have them stamp their hand onto a sheet of white paper. Next, have them glue gold coins at the bottom of their hand. Lastly, add a black pot. My boys really enjoyed making these. They loved painting their hands all the colors of the rainbow!
Shamrock Sun Catchers
We made tissue paper sun catchers for Christmas and loved them so much that we’ve been making them every holiday since! To make tissue paper sun catchers, cut a frame of your desired shape out of card stock (we made shamrocks). Lay the shape onto a self-adhesive laminate sheet. Have your child place colored pieces of tissue paper on the sheet. We used dark green, light green, and white. When your child is finished, seal in the tissue paper with a second laminate sheet. Punch a hole at the top and add a piece of yarn to hang your sun catcher in the window.
Using colored sharpies, I drew a rainbow onto sheets of white paper. I then had my boys trace the lines with the matching colored paint. I love the way these rainbows came out! Too cute!
My boys absolutely love Do-A-Dot Art markers and want to use them every chance they get. To make these fun shamrocks, I simply drew shamrock shapes onto a sheet of white paper and had my boys stamp the inside of them with green Do-A-Dot Markers.
These hand print leprechauns are absolutely adorable! To make them, paint your child’s hand orange, and their palm peach. Have them stamp their hand onto a sheet of white paper. Next, have your child glue on a green hat with buckle, and wiggly eyes. Finally, have your child draw on a nose and smile.
Hand Print Shamrocks
This is a super easy craft but it’s just so cute! Simply paint your child’s hand green and stamp three times onto a sheet of white paper. Next, paint on a green stem and your done.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
