10 St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Here are some great simple and easy crafts for kids that are also pretty fun!  
Most can be completed with minimal supplies which makes this teacher's heart super happy!

I love this idea and it's so simple!  Once students paint, color, or decorate their paper plate the fun begins!  Cut out a shamrock shape and use a brad to attach it to a straw.  The brad will allow it to spin and I guarantee your kids will love the end result!

This rainbow craft is sure to be a big hit with the littles!  Using only cotton balls and Fruit Loop cereal, this is a simple craft with a lot of color.  Can't beat that fine motor practice either!!

My kinders always love making this St. Patrick's Day hat.  Grab a paper plate, let them decorate it with paint, markers, or even crayons.  Cut a shamrock shape out of the top (being careful to leave the stem attached) and you'll have yourself a super cute shamrock hat!

Popsicle sticks, paint, and some googly eyes are all you'll need to create this creation.  This craft would be fun as a puzzle for kids to take apart and recreate or even as a magnet for a parent gift!

Last year this was my kiddos' favorite St. Patrick's Day craft we made.  They loved it!  Fill an empty water bottle with gold painted beans or rocks....add colored streamers.....and voila!  My kids had so much fun with this noise maker in the classroom. 

I remember making these types of crafts ALL the time in elementary school.  Although they take a long time to make, they really are quite simple.  Tissue paper, glue, and a pencil are pretty much all you'll need.  Students enjoy it and they get lots of fine motor practice wrapping the tissue paper around the end of their pencil.  

St. Patrick's Day crafts don't have to be all green!  This one is colorful and would be a perfect decoration for your classroom.  Imagine 20 rainbow hangers all around your room!!!  Grab some paper plates, cotton balls, and streamers or construction paper and you'll be all set. 

This cute craft can be done with any type of patterned paper or you can let students decorate their own papers before cutting it up into little pieces.  Use the little pieces to create a mosaic on a shamrock pattern shape.  Easy and cute!

These always turn out so cute when we do them!  Using markers and coffee filters students can create stunning shamrocks.  No two will ever be the same!

This is a fun printable set that I created for my kinders.  It has three super simple crafts for kids to complete.  A necklace, a bracelet, and a crown/headband are included.  You could either have each child create all three OR let kids choose which one they'd like to make!
