Grow Your Own Leprechaun Pick up a few supplies, gather the kids and put together this unique craft. Kids of any age will enjoy playing with dirt, mixing ingredients and then watching their very own leprechaun grow hair! The outside of a Styrofoam cup serves as the leprechauns face and hat. This project will need to be watered periodically in order for the grass to grow.
Rainbow Mobile This project is one that can be made for St. Patrick’s day but enjoyed for months to come. The bright colored streamers or ribbons used for the rainbow are sure to brighten any room. Supplies for this craft are minimal and the mobile is simple to create.
Pot of Gold Does your child want to give a friend a treat for St. Patrick’s Day? Made with a baby food/small jar, this pot of gold can be filled with candy or small trinkets. Top the jar off with a ribbon and pom poms. The recipient of this gift will feel like they have the luck of the Irish. This craft is perfect for a class of younger students.
Groovy Tie Dye Shamrock Children will delight when they see their shamrocks turning shades of green, blue and yellow. Coffee filters and food coloring are the two most important supplies for this project. Add a little water and voila a tie dyed masterpiece. Feel free to use other colors then those specified in the instructions.
