St. Patrick’s Day crafts for Preschoolers

on March 15, 2015

Since St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner, Kayla and I decided to do some Irish inspired craft projects over the weekend.  The first craft was a leprechaun.  I made a model leprechaun so she’d have an example of what I wanted her to do.  I cut out all the shapes for her, but she had to put him together, glue him, and put finishing touches on him.  We added a pot of gold to his hand, and she made a shamrock to put on his body.  Then she decorated him with stickers when she was all done.  I think she did a pretty good job.

Next, we made a shamrock/clover fan.  I cut out 3 good size heart shapes using green paper, and got a green popsicle stick.  Kayla glued it all together so that it would look like a big shamrock.  She used foam stickers to decorate it.

They were quick and easy crafts that kept her busy for a good 30 minutes.  While making the crafts, we talked about leprechauns, shamrocks, rainbows, and pots of gold.  My little Irish dancer had fun working on these St. Patrick’s Day crafts.  Too bad we didn’t plan ahead and make some homemade shamrock shakes.  Maybe next year.  🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
