Fun St. Patrick’s Day Kids Crafts
The Irish in me just loves celebrating St. Patrick's Day. It's one of the few holidays that requires no gift giving or fancy parties. Yet it's a great reason to make green cupcakes and get your kids involved with fun green crafts. I asked some of my favorite bloggers to share their favorite St. Patrick's Day crafts. Here are a few that will keep you and your kids busy all week long.
Rainbow Stained Glass Craft
Censie, who blogs at Building Our Story, shared a fantasic Rainbow Stained Glass window project. This project requires a short list of materials that you probably already have around the house, including wax paper, tissue paper, glue, and a paint brush. Check out her post for the full instructions.
Stacey has a fun craft that can be used as a cute centerpiece for your St. Patrick's Day meal (that's green pancakes in our house!). The Bucket of Luck craft involves painting a styrofoam cup, stuffing tissue paper in it and then topping it with pipe cleaners that form a rainbow. This is yet another project that is super simple! Don't miss the Bucket of Luck craft tutorial for more details.
If your kids love planting flowers, they will love this fun craft project. Help them make their own shamrock flower plant, without the worry of having to remember to water it! This craft requires a bit more supplies than the first two, but all of the materials are fairly inexpensive. Check out Stacey's Shamrock Love Plant directions for more information.
It simply amazes me just how many craft projects you can do with white paper plates. A round up wouldn't be complete without a fun leprechaun craft project. Your child will love creating lucky leprechaun in just 5 simple steps.
My boys loved creating their very own leprechaun traps. Ever since making them early last week, they have put them out each morning, in hopes to catch a little leprechaun. It's pretty cute listening them to chat with each other about their plans with the little green person, when they finally catch him. I'm sure this will be a St. Patrick's day tradition in our house for many years to come now.
