Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with your kids by making entertaining, educational and eco-friendly crafts together. Gather round with the apple of your eye and have some fun catching leprechauns, growing shamrocks out of a sponge, making your own gold, and so much more. You can create these 7 awesome crafts using recycled materials and items found in nature.
Lucky Clover Patch
The Lucky Clover Patch by Lisa Storms is the perfect St. Patrick’s Day craft that can be displayed every year. We love the idea of writing what your child is thankful for on the clovers! You can “green” the craft a little by using scrap pieces of paper and using a thin box in place of the styrofoam.
These clever Shamrock Sprouts we found at Housing a Forest spring to life with the aid of just a sponge (cut into the shape of a shamrock), seeds, and water. This is a great way to show your kids how seedlings can grow. You can even transplant the sprouts to soil once they have grown 3-4 inches.
St. Pat’s Lucky Gold
Your children will love making their own St. Pat’s Lucky Gold rocks! The crafty mom behind Yesterday on Tuesday spray painted her rocks gold, but we recommend you use a non-toxic gold paint to achieve the same rich hue.
