Kids love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green and learning about the folklore of the Irish. One of our favorites is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Another great way to celebrate and learn at the same time is with this St. Patrick’s Day name craft. Kids will find their own pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when they make this festive craft.
They’ll create some fun art to decorate for the holiday and practice spelling their name by arranging the gold coins that spilled out of their pot of gold.
Use our editable PDF to spell out your child’s name on the coins, and your kids will practice letter recognition when they arrange the letters in the correct order to spell their names. Alternatively, kids can write their names on blank coins.
Read on below for our instructions on how easy it is to make this name craft with your kids or students.
