St Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids
Three or four little handprints in green paint can make a perfect Shamrock craft!
Add a simple message to the page and don’t forget to add the year. Kids can write (or dictate to you) their favorite green things, what they love about St. Patrick’s Day, or a wish for the coming year.
This is a sweet memento to add to a memory box, pulling it out later on and remembering those tiny hands.

Cut a sponge into a shamrock shape, dampen it, and help little ones spread chia seeds all over the top.

Paper Plate Leprechaun Craft
Cut out a leprechaun hat from construction paper and glue to a paper plate. Cut thin strips of orange construction paper and wrap them around a pencil or crayon to curl. Glue the orange strips to the bottom of the plate to make a beard.
You can decorate the center of the plate with a face or cut out the middle before you start and make it a mask!
Paint and decorate a shoe box, cereal box, or other container and use it to try to catch a leprechaun. Don’t forget to bait your trap with a shiny coin and then hope the leprechaun takes the bait.
We haven’t successfully caught one yet, but we know we’ve come close because of the gold glitter that he left behind!
