8 St. Patrick's Day Crafts For Kids

I love paper plate crafts like this cute Pot of Gold from Tutus & Tea Parties. This would make a great door decoration too!

You can work on fine motor skills with your littlest kiddos when you do a simple craft like these Beaded Shamrocks from Fun-A-Day. You could also add magnets to the back of them and pop them on the fridge to add a little St. Patrick’s Day vibe to your kitchen.

I can’t wait to try this Rainbow Sponge Painting with my daughter. I still remember that awesome feeling of finger painting in kindergarten and how the cool paint feels squishing through your fingers! This mess-tacular craft comes from Hands On As We Grow.

Did you ever make paper chains when you were a kid? Crafty Morning shrunk them down to create a cool Rainbow & Pot of Gold Chain Necklace!

This Rainbow Cereal Craft from Growing A Jeweled Rose looks like something I did when I was about my daughter’s age. I think we did it with dyed pieces of pasta too!

Rainbow Rice lasts forever, so you can feel free to make up a big batch of this stuff to use in rainbow-themed crafts and sensory bins! Follow the DIY over at Mom On Dealz.

We all know playdough is awesome, but when you add glitter you bump up the fun factor by about a billion. Or at least that’s how kids feel! This Sparkly Lime Jello Play Dough from Plain Vanilla Mom will be a big hit this St. Patrick’s Day — and any day!

Add a bit of green to your windows with these Paper Plate Shamrock Sun Catchers from Crafty Morning. Lately, the sun has been sneaking out more and more during the day and I’m dying to bask in those rays!
