8 St. Patrick's Day Crafts for Toddlers!

By Danielle |

St. Patrick’s day is coming and it is the perfect time to start looking for great crafting ideas for your toddlers!

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

How 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.

    Lucas did a neat craft for Valentine’s Day that could also be used for St. Patrick’s Day. You need to do a little prep, but the kids enjoyed it. You need poster board, tissue paper, clear contact paper, a hole punch, a piece of string or yarn or something to hang the project with, and themed confetti. Of course you want to use various shades of green tissue paper, but I recommend white poster board. Cut a shamrock out of the poster board large enough so you can also cut out the center of the shamrock leaving about an inch of poster board. Cut the tissue paper into 1 inch squares (the don’t have to be exact). Cut two pieces of the contact paper so they completely cover the shamrock. Take the protective covering off one of the pieces of contact paper and place the poster board shamrock on it. Have your child place pieces of the confetti on the sticky part of the contact paper inside the shamrock. Then have them put the pieces of tissue paper over the confetti so they cover the inside of the shamrock. When they are done, place the other piece of contact paper over the project. If you want your child to practice using scissors, you can have them cut the excess contact paper from around the shamrock. Punch a whole in the top and hang it in a window. The look like a stained glass window or sun catcher. We still have Lucas’ heart hanging on our sliding glass door.
