St. Patrick’s Day Crafts Printable (** for premium members only)
For a wee bit of green fun in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a roundup of creative craft projects. Most are easily made with materials you already have at home or in the classroom, and many are simple enough for the tiniest of leprechauns.

These fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day crafts are listed by subject, including leprechaun, pot of gold, shamrock, and rainbow.

In addition to the craft instructions, the activities include reference links to articles about shamrocks, the history of St. Patrick’s Day, and other related topics. “Shamrock: (three leaves) is the national emblem of Ireland.
