If you have kids in school, they’re most likely on spring break right now which means you need ways to entertain them. What better way to do that than by having them make St. Patties Day crafts? Check out these awesome tutorials for a fun filled day with the kids!
Cut out the green paper in the shape of a top hat. You can either find a template online for this or freehand it. Cut a thick strip of black paper to glue above the brim of the hat. Cut out a yellow square and a smaller black square then glue the black in the middle of the yellow and the yellow in the middle of the black strip. Cut the orange paper so that it forms a large rounded beard that you can glue to either sides of the brim so that the child’s face can protrude through. Poke holes on either sides of the top hat, above the brim and tie the string so that it stays on the child’s head.
Paint (all the rainbow colors)
Black and yellow paper
Paint a stripe of each color onto the plate. It doesn’t have to be straight. Let it dry then flip it and do the same thing on the back side. Once the plate is dry, cut it while turning the plate so that it forms a spiral. Make a cauldron full of gold with the black and yellow paper then glue it to the bottom of the spiral.
This one is extremely easy but you might also hate it because of the sparkles. All the children have to do is is paint the rocks with the gold paint then sprinkle the gold sparkles on before it dries. Then let the rocks completely dry before handling.
All of these crafts amount to a wonderful scavenger hunt! hang up the rainbow cauldron somewhere the kids won’t see and place the gold coins around the house or yard and a big pile of them at the base of the rainbow cauldron. Have the kids put their leprechaun masks on then go on the hunt for the gold! Whoever wins, gets some fun St. Patties Day treats like the ones from our previous post.
