St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids
St. Patrick’s Day is filled with leprechauns, shamrocks, four-leaf clovers, rainbows, and pots-o-gold! And it’s the perfect holiday to get out the craft supplies and let the kids have some fun.
Grab the markers! Grab the construction paper! Grab the scissors! It’s time to make some St. Patrick’s Day crafts!
- Shamrock and Lucky Four-Leaf Clover Necklaces: These cute little shamrock and four-leaf clover necklaces are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. The kids will have a lot of fun stringing the beads and making the shamrocks and clovers. (You can buy colorful beads here or letter beads here.) And they can easily be made with any yarn you might have hanging around!
- 3D Rainbow Colored Paper Shamrocks: These 3-D Rainbow Colored Paper Shamrocks will look amazing on some windows in your place. The kids may need a little assistance cutting all of the paper strips, but it makes for a great family craft on a weekend afternoon.
- Leprechaun Trap: Do you have kids who are excited thinking that they might be able to catch a leprechaun? Then let them make a Leprechaun Trap to make it a little easier! There are a few different traps you can choose from – so check your supplies and get crafting, so the little guy doesn’t get away!
- St. Patrick’s Day Paper Plate Tambourine: If your children like to make music, they might like making this tambourine. It’s made from paper plates, and you can fill it with anything that will make noise. (Faux gold coins are suggested, but you could use beans, rice, or beads.)
- Paper Plate St. Patrick’s Day Unicorn: Here’s another paper plate craft – a St. Patrick’s Day Unicorn. This unicorn is super cute, and you could cut out the eyes and make it into a mask, too. (Don’t have a shamrock or heart punch? You can get the shamrock one here and the heart one here.)
- Rainbow Shamrock Suncatcher: These suncatchers are easy to make and only require a limited number of supplies: white disposable coffee filters, washable markers, a spray bottle, construction paper, and glue sticks.
- Rainbow Shaker Wand: Here’s another musical craft for the kids – a Rainbow Shaker Wand. It’s definitely festive, and when your kids make the tambourine, they can have their very own band!
- Paper Leprechaun: Grab those photos of the kids and have them make themselves into leprechauns. They’re so cute! You might even want to send them to the grandparents to bring a smile to their faces.
- Leprechaun Lookers: St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect day to go looking for leprechauns, but you need Leprechaun Lookers to do that! It’s a fun way to recycle toilet paper rolls, and the kids can decorate them however they like.
- Pot-O-Gold Slime: Sure, it’s a bit messy, but green and gold slime is going to make you really popular! (Think of it as a messy science experiment!)
- St. Patrick’s Day Joke Teller: Did you make these when you were young? Then it’s time to teach your children how to make a St. Patrick’s Day Joke Teller. This one is easy as there is a printable ready for you – you just have to show them how to do the folding. (And Bren Did has ones for other holidays, too!)
- Leprechaun Mask: Finally, grab the camera and take pictures of the kids in their new Leprechaun Masks. They’ll look so cute wearing these!
Your kids will have so much fun making these St. Patrick’s Day crafts and then using them to search for leprechauns, make music, or decorate your fridge! Which one do you think they’ll want to make first?
