7 Kid-Friendly St. Patrick’s Day Crafts
St. Patrick’s Day can be chock full o’ fun! Whether you’re Irish or honorary Irish, leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold, and shamrocks have an undeniable appeal. And St. Patrick’s Day crafts can bring a wee bit o’ the magic into your home. These seven projects are so kid-friendly that you won’t need the luck of the Irish to get them done!
We love this project because what kid can resist fake facial hair? While the finished product certainly looks befitting of a leprechaun, it isn’t too hard to make and only requires a few components. Since it requires cutting paper into strips, it may be more appropriate for children who have already mastered their scissor skills. However, it also calls for rolling paper strips, which younger kids can help with.
This project makes the list because even very small children can participate. If they can hold a marker, they can help make a suncatcher! Children use markers on coffee filters, which are then transformed with a little water. Parents may need to help cut out the shamrock design, but we think you’ll agree that these suncatchers would look lovely on your window!
A craft project is fun in and of itself, but one that your kids can wear may seem even more fun! That’s why we love this adorable necklace project. While the project calls for a lot of precise cutting and gluing or stapling, the results can be so satisfying.
Young kids and older kids alike often enjoy making paper chains, which is why we’ve selected this project. Since this craft calls for relatively large loops, it shouldn’t be too hard for even young children to make. Plus, hanging a few of these from your ceiling can make your home more festive!
We included this project in the list because not only does it create a fun craft, but it also helps kids practice their fine motor skills. Children lace colorful yarn through holes punched in a paper plate. Pony beads add a fun and unique touch.
So many craft projects are two-dimensional. We’ve included this project in the list because it’s 3D, so it would look great on a desk or as a table centerpiece. The project shouldn’t be too hard for children who are good at cutting and measuring, but younger kids may require a little extra help. Parents may also want to help their children with the duct tape since it can be tricky to cut.
Slime is one of the hottest craft projects. Many kids can’t get enough of the stuff, which is why we’ve selected this project. Plus, it’s so colorful and appealing that even adults might want to get their hands on it.
As always, make sure to supervise your children during craft projects to make sure they stay safe. Have a fun, festive St. Patrick’s Day!
