8 St. Patricks's Day Crafts and Treats!

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here. If you’re looking for a cute craft for the kids or a child-friendly (but, possibly not so healthy) recipe – you’re in luck!

Holiday activities

From rainbow paint projects to rainbows in marshmallow-cereal bars, we’ve been making all things St. Patrick’s Day. Check out some of these super-simple art (and treat) ideas for kids!

Pot of Gold Clay Paint

There’s a collage pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Instead of using finger paint, learn how to swap out the major mess-maker for modeling clay.


Kids' crafts

 
Rainbow Color-Mixing

Why give your child a rainbow of colors when she can make her own? The primaries plus white are all she needs for this artsy adventure.

Shamrock Felt Art

Make a DIY felt board that comes complete with shamrock shapes.

St. Patrick's Day
 
Leprechaun Hat

It’s a little hat for a leprechaun doll or toy. This craft truly goes green- by getting your child to reuse cardboard tubes instead of all new materials.

Shamrock Shake Popsicles

Who doesn’t love the classic milkshake? Freeze some of the leftovers to make these fun pops!

St. Patrick’s Day S’mores

Yum! Add a layer of bananas to the top to make it look like a pot of gold landed on the sweet s’more.

Oreo Truffle Balls
My favorite, but with a minty taste!
Andes Candies

 

Lucky Charms Bars

Switch up the rice cereal favorite for this holiday treat. Mix a bag of multi-colored mini marshmallows with half a stick of butter on the stove—until it’s melty. Add in a box of Lucky Charms. Spread the mix into a cake pan and refrigerate. Eat as soon as they’re cool. They won’t last long (at least they didn’t in my house).
