With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, you may be searching for some fun, festive ways to get your kids involved. Making crafts is a tried and true favorite of boys and girls of all ages, and you will get the added benefit of spending some quality time with your little leprechauns.
The following mom, dad, and kid approved crafts will leave you with some fantastic green garb and decor.
St. Patrick’s Day Banner
If you’re looking to make just one green addition to your March home decor, we recommend this eye-catching homemade banner. There is a bit of cutting and hot glue involved, but it’s well worth the extra effort. Once complete, hang your new banner above the living room door, fireplace, snack table, or wherever strikes your fancy! Full instructions available at A Pumpkin & A Princess.
Shamrock Window Craft
This is an easy craft project, ideal for toddlers. Once the project is complete, you’ll have a fancy, green piece of decor to proudly display in your window. Aside from the basics like scissors and tape, head to the craft store for some contact paper, crinkle green grass, tissue paper, and plenty of glitter. Read full instructions at Hands On As We Grow.
3D Shamrock Frame
This simple craft is great for you, and your kids. The inexpensive materials combined with a quick assembly make this project ideal for group crafting or last-minute additions to your home decor. Get the details over at Craftaholics Anonymous.
Clover Sun Catchers
This craft packs two fun activities into one: hunting for clovers, and creating naturally green sun catchers. Just be sure to budget a full extra day for your leaves to dry and flatten – it will make crafting your sun catcher significantly easier. For the full effect, hang the finished product on a window or glass door that receives plenty of sunlight. Get the full scoop over at Pink Stripey Socks.
Tissue Paper Shamrock
This tissue paper clover is just what you need to complete your St.Patrick’s Day decorations – and it only requires four materials! Add a festive ribbon or green yarn to hang the clover for all to enjoy. Full instruction available at Crafts By Amanda.
