Looking for some fast and fun St. Patrick’s Day crafts? Don’t know where to start to make St. Patrick’s Day crafts? Well, look no further! Gather up a few items from around your house and you can start making some fast St. Patrick’s Day crafts.
Most of the kids crafts can be found around you house using basic materials like egg cartons, cardboard, paper, boxes, string, crayons, paint, and glue. Let’s look at a few ideas for St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids.
Find a paper plate in your house and cut out some colored construction paper. Then punch holes in the top of the colored cut-outs and tie them onto the paper plate and you have a rainbow streamer!
Try making a leprechauns hat from paper. Use some green, yellow and black construction paper along with a little glue and you have yourself a leprechaun’s hat!
Jell-O is always fun for kids to make. You can make a rainbow Jell-O cup. It does take a few hours. Get all the colors of the rainbow and some sour cream if you want to add some fun layers. Boil one color and keep half of it out to mix with one cup of sour cream, pour the first layer into the cups and place it in the fridge, after about 30 minutes you put the sour cream mixed layer on top of that and just keep repeating until you have a colorful rainbow Jell-O cup!
Some other helpful St. Patrick’s Day tips are below:
•Cut out shamrocks in green craft paper and hang them all over your house.
•Purchase a “leprechaun’s pot” and fill it with chocolate wrapped in gold.
•Dye your party drink green.
•Eat some Irish soda bread (usually dyed green too!).
•Serve up the green food: Jell-O, lime pudding, key lime pie. I think you get the point!
•Dress up as a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day
•Get some green glow sticks and put them all over your house
•Purchase green lights for the outside of your house
If you’re decorating for a party, don’t be afraid to think outside the box a little. Will your party be adults only or is a family party? It’s always fun to have a hide and seek treasure hunt for the leprechaun’s pot of gold.
If you are cooking up a big dinner for St. Patrick’s Day, try out some traditional Irish food to go along with all your St. Patrick’s Day decor. Have a green tablecloth, plates, and dinnerware served with some green soda or alcohol. For the meal, many American’s have adapted chicken and rice with Lima beams alongside sliced green maraschino cherries in coconut sauce colored with green food coloring. Don’t forget about a green salad with avocados and green apples!
