March 17th is fast approaching so there is no better time to get started with some of these best St Patrick’s Day crafts for kids.
My children love to celebrate all the seasons and living in Ireland we adore doing Saint Patricks crafts for kids to honour this day.
Irish Crafts for Kids
There are so many different Irish crafts for kids featuring Leprechauns, pots of gold, hair pieces, slime and lots more! There are just so many ways you can celebrate this Irish holiday.
Of course we love crafting to celebrate but you know what else we do here in Ireland to celebrate? We love eating something called Irish Stew or Potato bread. I highly recommend both of these if you ever get the chance to visit. You can eat these at anytime of the year, not just St Patrick’s Day.
Whether you celebrate on March 17th or not you are sure to love doing these kids crafts over and over again.
Lucky for me that my good craft buddies have given me lots of fun ideas for you all to try! Of course I have some of my own ideas and I plan to add them too!
Most of these come with free templates and printable instructions to make them easy to follow.
