There was a time in my life when St. Patrick’s Day meant nothing more than an excuse to drink green beer and do silly things with my friends, but now that I’m a parent, the holiday has taken on much greater meaning to me. Whether my daughter and I are dressing up in green, decorating our home in shamrocks, or making rainbow cupcakes, March 17 gives us an excuse to go ALL OUT, and these St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids have given us lots to be excited about over the years.
Of course, that’s not to say I no longer partake in a little green beer and a few shenanigans with my friends on St. Patty’s Day, but for the purposes of this posts, I’ll keep it family friendly…
Whether you’re looking for ways to keep your toddlers and preschoolers entered on cold afternoons, or if you’re a teacher who is looking for classroom activities for school-aged kids, this collection of St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids is sure to be a hit.
