Holiday Decorating & Crafts

Alright ye crazy leprechauns! Who be ready for some fun that’ll be sure to impress the wee ones?

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that is generally skipped over by the public, unless you happen to rock that Irish heritage. While I’m not a full-blooded Irishman, I do like having some kid-friendly St. Patrick’s Day crafts and activities that they can do to break up the couple months in between Valentine’s Day and Easter.

Kid-Friendly Crafts and Activities for the Older Crew

My number one St. Patrick’s Day activity is one that I do for my kids every year. Send them on a scavenger hunt to find the gold, or the leprechaun, or a rainbow, or whatever you choose. I guarantee they will have a blast finding some type of treasure or goodie at the end. Plus, it keeps them busy for awhile as they hunt down clues. Here is one that I’ve done:

All the toddlers I know just love to eat treats. And what better way then turning it into a fun Bingo game like this one?

If you prefer to not go the candy route, making a rainbow with fruit loops and marshmallows will definitely be a crowd pleaser. See this cute idea here.

Making a shamrock from crepe paper would be a good activity for preschoolers. You just need paper, glue, and green crepe paper. See more instructions here from The Resourceful Mama.

Kid-Friendly St. Paddy’s Treats

It wouldn’t be a holiday if we didn’t throw in at least a few yummy treats, right? These dipped Oreos look YUM and simple for the kids to help with!

Rice crispy treats are just another taste of deliciousness that can’t be ignored. Seriously. You can never go wrong with something full of gooey marshmallow! These ones are super cute with the shamrocks, but if you can’t find those, any green sprinkles or small candies would do.
