St Patrick's Day Crafts

Get your kids excited about St. Patrick’s Day by making some crafts together:

• 3-D Rainbow

We used colored noodles and cotton balls to fill in this hand-sketched rainbow. Add a title and a border, and you have a great decoration!

• Leprechaun

Cover a toilet paper roll with green paper. Have your child draw a face on a circle-shaped paper, then add pipe cleaner hair, a hat and some arms.

• Shamrock Collage

We used foam shapes to cover this shamrock, but you could use anything green—pom poms, colored noodles, scraps of paper, stickers, etc.

• Pot of Gold

After coloring this rainbow, we added a construction paper pot, complete with shamrock. Then we carefully unwrapped some chocolate coins, and glued the wrappers on the pot (after eating the chocolate, of course!).

Happy crafting!
