It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, and there is something about this magical day that delights children.
Maybe it’s the gold coins and leprechauns? Gold and glitter are two items that are sure to delight all children. In case you are looking for a few craft ideas that you can make with your children, both school-aged and preschoolers, look no further. I’ve gathered together a collection of more than 20 St. Patrick’s Day Kid Craft ideas that are sure to please your littlest Leprechauns!
Let’s start with these sweet Rainbow Treat Cups For St. Patrick’s Day tutorial over at Crafts by Amanda. They are perfect for party decorating, or maybe the leprechauns can fill them with gold chocolate coins one night after your kiddos make them?
If your preschoolers would like to be a leprechaun and spread magic to his friends, then you can make her either of these two awesome Shamrock wands. Smart School House has an easy tutorial using cut out hearts and paint.
Crafty Morning has a similar tutorial using green construction paper and glitter glue to create sparkling Shamrock Wands!
I’m really partial to this project to create Mosaic Paper Shamrocks from Happiness is Homemade because it’s a great chance for preschoolers to work on developing fine motor skills while creating beautiful seasonal art.
Another great fine motor craft that preschoolers can wear on St. Patrick’s Day are these fun Beaded Rainbow Necklace by Buggy and Buddy.
If your kiddo would like to make a ring to go with her necklace. Check out these Four Leaf Clover Rings by Love Ellie Belle.
As a lover of felt, I must say that this Rainbow Headband with Shamrock by Cutesy Crafts is a wonderful way to dress for St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s easy enough for older children to make!
And here are some Leprechaun Hats that preschoolers can make out of toilet paper rolls by The Resourceful Mama.
However, if you’d rather use styrofoam cups, try this tutorial by Crafts by Amanda for Styrofoam Cup Leprechaun Hats.
I found 2 more toilet paper roll projects for St. Patrick’s Day. Pretty Prudent has a kids’ craft making 4-leaf clover stamps with them. I really like how sophisticated this project looks.
Or you can make these darling Leprechaun binoculars following the tutorial on Crafty Morning.
After you’ve found your leprechauns with your binoculars, try using this Leprechaun Trap to catch them, following the tutorial on Crafts Unleashed by Consumer Crafts.
These colorful St. Patrick’s Day Mini Sound Shakers by Buggy and Buddy might just be my favorite kids’ craft I’ve found. Repurpose your bottle tops and use some washi tape to make these!
However, I do really like this St Patricks Clover Canvas Art by Lovely Clusters. It’s great for fine motor development, but probably better for slightly older children.
This Mason Jar Leprechaun Vase tutorial by Yesterday on Tuesday is another craft that is great for slightly over children and can be used year after year.
Here’s another great home decor project by It’s away Ruetten for DIY Mossy Door Decor that is a great project for slightly older kiddos. Plus, it is so fancy that I know they will be proud to show it off!
However, just so the preschoolers aren’t left out, Plaid Crafts has this sweet handprint tutorial that children of all ages can make!
Here’s another wonderful alternative of the rainbow handprint and pot of gold by B-Inspired Mama, which is wonderful for toddlers and preschoolers.
Or maybe this easy Shamrock Wreath from We-Made-That.com.
I do love button crafts, and I think this Easy St. Patrick’s Day Craft For Kids by Carrie Elle with buttons by could be a great mantel decoration.
They can also make these Four Leaf Clover Paper Craft to hang throughout your house. Get the tutorial over at Meaningful Mama.
And there are so many other possibilities! So it’s a great time to get crafting with your leprechauns of every size to make sure that you have a festive and colorful home that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
