Kids Crafts: 3 Fun Crafts for St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is all about celebrating Irish culture, and what is more Irish than green, gold, rainbows, and potatoes? These three fun kids crafts can be a little messy but are also tons of fun!
3 Fun Kids Crafts for St. Patrick's Day
- Fruit Loop Rainbow – The first craft is fun and colorful. All you have to do is sketch a rainbow in the proper color order, preferably, and then have the kids glue on Froot Loops. Decorate the ends with fluffed up cotton balls and you have a rainbow any leprechaun would be happy to hide his gold under! Best of all, the kids can munch on leftover broken bits and just have fun.
- Buried Gold Sensory Tub – Sensory tubs are great fun for kids. For this tub, you will need some green rice (just white rice mixed with food coloring or lime Jell-O and shaken well) or dried green beans like lentils. Hide several gold coins in the tub and watch as the kiddos have a blast digging out the buried gold. You can even use gold wrapped chocolate coins for an extra treat! Lay down a drop cloth so that any runaway beans are easy to clean up.
- Potato Stamping – As Irish as potatoes are, you just can’t leave them out in a St. Patrick’s Day craft. First, draw a large shamrock on a piece of construction paper. Then cut a small potato on half (whatever size will fit in your child’s hand). Using an ink pad or thin paint, have the kids stamp on color to the shamrock. They will have fun filling the shamrock with green and gold paint. This is a great use for potatoes that are about to be thrown out! They can even embellish their shamrock with glitter and glue if you would like.
These are just a few fun craft ideas for little ones to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. There are many more fun crafts out there so take a look and see what you can come up with.
