I went on a quest to find some I can do with our toddler that would be easy for him, but also something my oldest son would be able to participate in as well. Without getting bored!
A lot of the crafts I found are handprint related, which is great to use from year-to-year to see how much your kids have grown. I know in recent years crafts like that have become more and more popular with my kids because none of us can believe they are growing so fast.
On a side note — St. Patrick’s Day is really a favorite in my house because of my and my husband’s Irish heritage. I know it is so commercialized today, but we embrace it all. We actually drag all the kids to one of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day parades in the entire United States, which takes place locally in New Haven, CT. I am not sure where it fits into the grand scheme of parades this year, but in years past it has been the sixth biggest parade in the country.
Anyway! Here are the awesome crafts I found.

Hand Print Leprechaun 1 of 8How cute is this?
It is a hand print which you can make into a leprechaun and of course a rainbow made while finger painting.
A great idea to do year-to-year and mark the year and child that made it.
