St. Patrick’s Day is all about the color green. The first craft is a shamrock with unique prints that is fun to make. Start by adding the shamrock cutout, the marbles and a few squirts of paint into a container. My son used a shoe box because we have so many at home. Finally, cover the container and shake it up. Play some Irish dancing music to get moving and have fun.
Use recycled toilet paper rolls to create these cute hats for St. Patrick’s Day. If you don’t want a huge mess, use construction paper instead of paint for the toilet paper roll. My son tends to make a mess with paint so we did this craft outside.
Use colored tissue paper and glue to create this colorful shamrock. Make sure to glue onto the cardstock paper first instead of on a shamrock cutout. We made that mistake. It’s easier to cut out the pattern once the paper is dry.
This craft is a great option for toddlers and preschoolers. It only requires a few steps and they can review colors while completing this project. This is also a great way to introduce the use of scissors to preschoolers by cutting straight lines to create the rainbow.
This leprechaun craft is simple to make and great for all ages. My son had so much fun tearing the construction paper to create the beard. You can give your leprechaun a unique look by creating funky eyebrows, thick beard or a silly smile.
My son loves making slime. We had to create a special slime to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It’s so popular with kids these days and easy to make. We used our favorite slime recipe, which includes clear glue, baking soda and contact solution. Feel free to substitute your own recipe just add in the festive glitter as well as the shamrock confetti. I was able to find the confetti at Party City but you can also order it online.
