50 St. Patrick’s Day Crafts For Kids – Get Into The Festive Spirit

Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re the type of person that loves DIY projects, as well as including your kids in them, then you are in luck because we have gathered fifty crafts for kids to do this Saint Patrick’s Day.

St patrick's day crafts for kids

They can be made out of things you already have lying around the house, and they’re not only fun but will also get your kids into the festive spirit of Saint Patrick’s day, which is every year on March 17th.


What Is St. Patrick’s Day?

St patrick's day

St. Patrick’s Day is a Christian holiday that became official somewhere around the 17th century, and the following religious organizations hold it:

  • Anglican Communion
  • Catholic Church
  • Eastern Orthodox Church
  • Lutheran Church

The holiday commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and a celebration of Irish culture in general.

That’s precisely why St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in regions with a large Irish population, such as North America and Great Britain.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t use these fun crafts for kids to get into festivities anyway! There are plenty of ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.


Typical St. Patrick’s Day Crafting

St patrick's day crafts

If you’ve ever attended a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, you probably noticed that it mostly involves parades, festivals, céilís, and the wearing of shamrocks, as well as clothes that are predominantly (if not entirely green).

Thus being said, they’re pretty much no limit to what you can craft together with your kids, just as long as your crafts are green or have some sort of Irish theme to them.


Best St Patrick’s Day Crafts

When we created this list, we looked over social media platforms and various crafting blogs to see how others have been preparing for the holiday while also taking non-St. Patrick Day crafts and giving them a little Irish twist.

The result was a list of 50 different entries, all of which are funnier and more entertaining than the other, so your kids will get a blast out of making them together!

Without further ado, here are the best St. Patrick’s Day crafts that you can try this year with your kids:

1. St. Patrick’s Day Painting Ideas – Rainbow Paper Sun

Besides the color green, leprechauns, shamrocks, and gold coins, rainbows are yet another symbol of St. Patrick’s Day, and this next DIY craft idea embodies it to its fullest: the DIY rainbow paper sun!

To make one of these cute little characters, you’ll need to have the following supplies and tools:

  • Crepe paper in all the colors of the rainbow
  • Yellow and orange paper to make the sun
  • Black and pink markers
  • A pair of googly eyes
  • A pair of scissors
  • A glue stick

You can draw the smile and the character’s blush in whatever style you want, and you can even use big googly eyes if you manage to find any at your local crafts store.

When you’re done making it, you can attach a pinback and hang them on the drapes from your child’s room, or you can even use a bit of twine and hang them from their room ceiling.

If you want more details on how you can make your rainbow sun, check out our dedicated article since we included detailed steps accompanied by illustrations. We even included a video tutorial that you can follow.

2. St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Preschool – DIY St. Patrick’s Day Banner

St patrick's day crafts for preschool diy st patrick's day banner

When it comes to celebrating a holiday, regardless of whether you’re talking about St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter, one decoration that should never be missing from your house is a festive banner.

Because of this, we decided to include in our list a St. Patrick’s Day festive banner that you and your kids will have a blast making, especially since it’s incredibly easy to make.

To make a banner like in the picture above, you’ll need the following home supplies:

  • A pencil
  • A paper cutter
  • Some green yarn
  • A pair of scissors
  • A length of jute twine
  • Some scrap cardboard
  • Some white card stock
  • A cookie-cutter shaped like a shamrock

We won’t discuss the exact steps to making this banner since you can find them all listed in the original article from Life Family Fun, but trust us when we tell you that the process is easy and the result will be well worth it.

Depending on how long you want your banner to be, you’ll probably have to adjust the exact quantity of materials you’ll need, but that shouldn’t be a problem since all supplies are easy to come by.

However, since we are talking about a St. Patrick’s Day craft for preschoolers, we recommend that you be the one that handles the scissors and does all the cutting, just to make sure that the crafting experience is completely accident-free.

3. Printable St. Patrick’s Day Crafts – Pennant Banner

Printable st patrick's day crafts pennant banner

If you’re planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a big party, then you’ll need to bring your decorating game to the next level, so something like a pennant banner is almost mandatory.

The best thing about this particular banner idea is that you have some lighting effects thanks to the fact that it uses glitter to make the letters, thus letting light shine off of them a bit.

Here are the materials that you’ll need:

  • A few sheets of double-sided adhesive material
  • Some colored card stock
  • Some letter templates
  • A pair of scissors
  • Some twine
  • A pencil
  • A brush

While the original article from Ginger Snap Crafts recommend that you use a toolkit that has everything you need inside, we will provide you with the complete DIY version in a nutshell:

  1. Use your scissors to cut the card stock into the shape of pennants
  2. Use the letter templates and the pencil to mark the outlines of each letter on the double-sided adhesive material
  3. Use the scissors to make cutouts out of the double-sided adhesive material
  4. Stick the letters to the cardboard pennants
  5. Remove the top layers of the letters until you leave a sticky print on the pennant in the shape of that letter
  6. Cover the sticky area with glitter, and then use the brush to remove any excess
  7. Use a needle to run twine through the top of each pennant
  8. Arrange them to form whatever word you want
  9. Hang the pennant banner wherever you want

You can write whatever words you like, such as Lucky or Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

4. St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Preschoolers – Pot of Gold with Chocolate Coins

St patrick's day crafts for preschoolers pot of gold with chocolate coins

Those of you that are excited about St. Patrick’s Day and have kids have probably already told them about the legend of the leprechaun and his pot of gold that’s at the end of a rainbow.

Well, in the spirit of that legend, we decided to include a craft of the edible kind that you can try out with your kids: DIY chocolate gold coins!

The original recipe from A Modern Homestead showcases how you can make beautiful chocolate gold in your home without any added sugar, which is perfect if you have small children. You want to give them a healthy snack.

To make these golden coins, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Round molds (you can buy them off of Amazon)
  • Gold-colored aluminum foil or candy foil
  • Sugar-free chocolate

All you’ll have to do is melt the chocolate in the microwave and then pour it into the molds. When the chocolate has chilled and become solid, you can wrap it gently in the tin foil.

This second step is probably the most important. While wrinkles and imperfections in your DIY coins are inevitable, you can make at least one side of the coin look perfectly smooth by following the detailed instructions from the original article!

5. Preschool Saint Patrick’s Day Crafts – Rainbow Wreath

Preschool saint patrick's day crafts rainbow wreathv

Normally when you think about wreaths, you probably think of Christmas, Halloween, or even Thanksgiving, but the next entry proves that you can make a wreath with every occasion, even if that occasion is St. Patrick’s Day.

However, unlike common wreaths made from whicker or twine, this one is made solely from cardboard and paper so that kids can have an easier time crafting them with nothing more than glue, scissors, and colored crayons.

To make a wreath similar to the one in the picture above, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Craft paint in all the colors of the rainbow
  • Colored construction paper
  • A pair of scissors
  • A circle punch
  • A paper plate
  • A paintbrush
  • Some glue

For the exact steps on how you can make this wreath, along with detailed illustrations, head over to Non-Toy Gifts and check out their full article.

Since the wreath is very lightweight, you won’t need nails to stick it to your doorways, as the double-sided tape was more than enough to keep it hanging, and it didn’t damage the paint on the door either.

What we liked most about this particular craft is that creating it is loads of fun, and up until you need to make the cutouts, it feels more like completing a coloring book.

6. St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Toddlers – Toilet Paper Roll Leprechaun Hats

St patrick's day crafts for toddlers toilet paper roll leprechaun hats

Crafting materials tend to get expensive when you buy them specifically for certain projects, and that’s why crafts that use whatever materials or leftover materials you have lying around the house are the best.

For example, at one point or another, you may end up with an empty toilet paper roll that you’ll end up throwing away, and that’s why we suggest that you give it a second life instead by turning it into a fun-sized leprechaun hat!

This original craft from The Resourceful Mama looks positively amazing, and you don’t have to wrack your brains too much to make it either, and that’s precisely why we just had to include it on our list.

To make these leprechaun hats, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Colored paper (yellow, green, and black) for the hat’s details
  • Green paint (the more vibrant, the better)
  • An empty toilet paper roll
  • Toilet paper roll
  • A circle punch
  • Some glue

Crafting these hats together with your kids will be a piece of cake, and it won’t take long either, although admittedly, you will have to wait around for the paint to dry.

However, the result is well worth the effort since you can create miniature hats for all of your kid’s toys so that they can be in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit as well!

For further details on how to create these hats, along with step-by-step instructions and illustrations that can help you along the way, head over to the original article and read it from A to Z.

7. St. Patricks Day Easy Crafts – Paper Shamrock Decorations

St patricks day easy crafts paper shamrock decorations

Decorating your house on holidays is something normal, and while we fill our house with eggs and bunnies on Easter and snowmen and candy canes on Christmas, why not fill our house with shamrocks on St. Patrick’s Day?

Sure enough, we’re not talking about actual shamrocks, but paper ones that you made yourself, such as these paper shamrocks from How About Orange.

To make a handful of these paper shamrocks, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Some green-colored paper
  • A heart-shaped template
  • A pair of scissors
  • Some tape

As far as the heart-shaped template is concerned, there are plenty of designs that you can download for free, so it’s completely up to your which ones you end up using.

Once you’ve cut out four hearts of the same size, glue them together to form the shamrock, and then add a narrow strip of green-colored paper to be the stem.

What we liked most about these simplistic paper crafts is that thanks to the way they are made, they have this 3D effect that looks amazing.

8. Easy St. Patrick’s Day Crafts – DIY Fingerprint Shamrock Mug

Easy st patrick's day crafts diy fingerprint shamrock mug

We all know how kids love painting, especially if they get the chance to use their fingers instead of paintbrushes, and that’s what inspired us to include this next entry on our list: the DIY fingerprint shamrock mug.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your custom shamrock mug

  • Some green porcelain paint
  • A black porcelain marker
  • Some contact paper
  • A white mug
  • A craft knife

For detailed steps on making this mug, head over to Non-Toy Gifts and check out their full article.

You should keep in mind that you need to be very careful with the porcelain paint that you buy and make sure that it’s non-toxic, especially considering how your kids will be dipping their fingers in it.

More so, we recommend that you keep an eye on them so that they don’t swallow the paint, and make sure that they wash their hands thoroughly as soon as you’re done with the mug so that the paint doesn’t get a chance to dry.

It’s easy to make, it looks amazing, your kids have complete creative freedom over the design, and the best part is that after the paint has dried, they now have a new favorite mug they can drink their chocolate milk out of!

9. St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Adults – St. Patrick’s Day Rag Wreath

St patrick's day crafts for adults st patrick's day rag wreath

If you liked the previous idea about making a St. Patrick’s Day-themed wreath but are looking for a design that’s a bit more complex yet still simple enough for your children to give you a helping hand making it, we recommend this St. Patrick’s Day rag wreath.

To make one of these rag wreaths, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Pieces of green fabric scraps
  • A wire hanger
  • Some pliers
  • Some wire
  • Duct tape

For more details on how to turn these simple materials into an incredibly festive wreath, check out the full article from The Magic of Ordinary Things.

The best thing about this particular craft idea is that you can use it as an excuse to put any rags or old clothes to good use, especially if they are green and you were planning to throw them away anyway.

More so, when Christmas comes, you can just add a few bells and some extra red rags here and there and turn it into a Christmas-themed rag wreath in no time!

Not only that, but if you like the design as a whole, you can make wreaths for other holidays by sticking to the same core concept, such as making a Thanksgiving wreath made using orange and brown rags.

10. St. Patrick’s Day Craft Ideas – Felt Shamrock Pin

St patrick's day craft ideas felt shamrock pin

We believe that a decorative piece doesn’t have to be big or flashy or have a lot of bells and whistles to be festive, and that’s why we wanted to include this next craft idea: a felt shamrock pin.

Besides, since we are talking about crafts that your kids can partake in, we wanted to include something that uses the least amount of potentially hazardous supplies and tools.

Well, this no-sew felt shamrock pin fits all the criteria, and to prove it, all you’ll need are the following supplies and tools:

  • A piece of green felt in green
  • Some paint markers
  • A pair of scissors
  • Some paper glue
  • Some pinbacks

We won’t go into details as to how you can make these felt pins since the folks at A Night Owl did an excellent job already, but suffice to say that it will be extremely easy to pull off.

However, we would recommend that you are the one working with the pinbacks since you don’t want your kids to prick themselves by mistake.

Besides, suppose you were looking for inspiration for other holidays. In that case, you can take the felt pin idea and modify it to suit those as well, such as using orange felt pumpkins for Halloween or using green felt cut into Christmas trees for the winter holidays.

11. Simple Easy St. Patrick’s Day Crafts – Green Slime

Simple easy st patrick's day crafts green slime

Kids love playing in things that they can mold, be it dough, clay, or even slime, and that’s why this next entry is the perfect option for your St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas list: green slime!

If you don’t know, slime is just a fancy name given to any non-Newtonian fluid with high viscosity when in motion or at rest but loses this quality when subjected to stress or sudden force.

However, let’s leave the science aside for a bit and showcase how you can make your own St. Patrick’s Day slime by starting with the materials stated in the original article from the folks at Little Bins for Little Hands:

  • 1/2 cup of washable PVA clear glue or white glue
  • 1/2 cup of liquid starch
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Green food coloring
  • Green glitter, shamrock confetti, etc. (optional)

All you have to do is mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, and if you can manage to get your hands on some non-toxic glue, your child will be able to make an entire batch of slime all by themselves.

The great thing about this craft is that not only does it appeal to a child’s natural curiosity towards gooey materials, but you’ll also be creating a brand new toy for them without spending too much money!

If you love the idea of making slime and would like to try some other designs as well, check out these two articles where we showcased a total of 30 different DIY slime ideas:

12. St. Patricks Day Toddler Crafts – Paper Plate Leprechaun Mask

St patricks day toddler crafts paper plate leprechaun mask

Dressing up in costumes is one of the most fun parts of celebrating any holiday, but if you are not in the U.S., it might be difficult to come by an out-of-the-box costume that your kid can use.

But just because you don’t have over-the-top festive clothing options around doesn’t mean that you can’t dress up in costumes at all, and this next entry will show you how to do just that: paper plate leprechaun masks!

This is a great craft idea because it uses items that are readily available at home, such as:

  • Colored construction paper (green, orange, black, and yellow/gold)
  • Orange paint
  • Paper plate
  • Gold glitter
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Yarn

The people at Simply Today Life went into great detail, explaining how you can take these everyday household supplies and turn them into an amazing-looking leprechaun mask in their dedicated article. They even included illustrations of how they did it.

As you can see for yourself from the picture above, the mask is fun and whimsical, and you can make tweaks here and there to make it just the way your child likes it!

13. St Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kindergarten – 3D Paper Rainbow

St patrick's day crafts for kindergarten 3d paper rainbow

Creative crafts with visual effects have a special place in our hearts, so when we stumbled upon this amazing 3D paper art featuring a rainbow leading down to a pot of gold, we just had to include it in our list.

To make one of these amazing little rainbows, you’ll need to prepare the following supplies and tools:

Sheet of paper in each of the colors of the rainbow

  • A sheet of regular white paper
  • A sheet of matte black paper
  • A pair of scissors
  • Some scotch tape
  • Some pennies
  • Some glitter

 If you’re from outside the U.S. and don’t have any pennies, try using whatever coins you have in your region that have a yellowish tint to them, such as bronze or brass.

More so, if you can’t manage to get your hands on some proper coins, you could always use some gold paper or cardboard and cut them into small circles to mimic gold coins.

If you want the full tutorial on how you can create your 3D paper rainbow, check out the full guide from Crafty Morning, since they included detailed steps, illustrations, and even a picture of the final product.

As you can see, the result looks amazing, and your kids will have a blast creating it together with you and then hanging it on the refrigerator for everyone to admire.

14. St. Patrick’s Day Arts and Crafts for Toddlers – Clover Button Art

St patrick's day arts and crafts for toddlers clover button art

Earlier in the article, we talked about how you can use any scrap cloth to make a DIY wreath; now, we will show you how you can use all of those spare buttons around the house to make some clover-themed button art.

The folks at Fleece Fun seemed to have a lot of fun crafting this button art using everyday household materials.

Speaking of which, you’ll need to prepare the following supplies:

  • Green buttons and tiny green beads
  • Some stretched canvas
  • Several glue sticks
  • Some scrap paper
  • A pair of scissors
  • A hot glue gun
  • A pencil

Long story short, they glued the buttons and beads within the outline of a shamrock that they drew on the canvas until they managed to obtain a visually stunning silhouette shaped like a four-leaf clover.

If you want the full detailed tutorial, check out the original article and follow it closely; you have everything there, including step-by-step instructions and images illustrating them.

Once you’re done with this craft, you can go ahead and frame it and then put it on your nightstand, or even make a much bigger version of it and hang it on a wall somewhere where everyone can see it.

15. Saint Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids – Toilet Paper Roll Snakes

Saint patrick's day crafts for kids toilet paper roll snakes

According to old legends, when Saint Patrick arrived in Ireland, he also drove all the snakes away right off the cliffs and straight into the seas, besides bringing Christianity with him.

Because of this, snakes are also part of the St. Patrick’s Day mythos, and we wanted to include one such craft in our list.

The people at Little Passports were very creative when they throughout about turning regular toilet paper to paper towel rolls into decorative snakes, and you and your kids will have loads of fun making them yourselves.

Speaking of which, here’s what you’ll need to prepare to make your little cardboard snakes:

  • Toilet paper or paper towel rolls
  • Some scrapbooking paper
  • Some googly eyes
  • A pair of scissors
  • A stick of glue
  • Paint markers
  • Some tape

Read the full article to see how you can make your slithering snakes, but know this: they are a lot cuter than the real thing, so make plenty of them so that your kids will have plenty of new cardboard toys to play with!
