From lucky leprechauns to rainbows worthy of a pot gold, there are plenty of St. Patrick’s Day craft projects to keep little ones busy until March 17. These activities are perfect for parent-child bonding time or to encourage siblings to work cooperatively while tapping into their creativity. Here are seven of our favorite St. Patty’s Day crafts for kids to put everyone in a festive mood.  

Pom Pom Leprechaun

This super simple leprechaun art project from Crafty Morning requires only construction paper, crayons, glue, scissors — and pom poms, of course. Your child will have fun choosing and gluing them onto the leprechaun’s beard, and they can make his googly-eyed face as serious or silly as they want. 

Watercolor Shamrock Clover Cards

Break out some watercolors for this Hello, Wonderful project. Grandparents will love to receive these homemade cards in the mail, with a personalized drawing or a note inside.

Mini Pots of Gold

With a craft store-purchased pot and a handful of other supplies, your child can create a pot of gold that any leprechaun would love. Fill it with some gold-wrapped chocolate or candy and turn the project into a gift for a teacher or neighbor with Club Chica Circle‘s free printable rainbow tag.

Shamrock Slime

The DIY slime trend continues with this shimmery fun craft from As the Bunny Hops. This one requires some adult supervision, and you’ll want to keep the borax away from small children before it goes into the mixture.
