Over the last couple of years, we’ve done quite a few fun St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids!
Even though it’s not what I would consider a “big” holiday, it’s such a fun one to celebrate with kids because of all the rainbows, glitter, coins, and leprechauns!
These cute St. Patrick’s Day crafts are perfect for doing with the kids at home or with your students in the classroom.
Plus, almost all the crafts come with a free printable template so you know your kids will be able to follow along and make one without the frustration of recreating it themselves.
