11 Easiest St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Little Leprechauns

Next week is my preschooler’s “spring break,” which means we’ll be filling our days with plenty of painting and crafting — so I thought why not try out some St. Patrick’s Day crafts? And not those beautifully styled crafts you see on pinterest that you just know the kid barely touched. I’m talking real, entertaining, kid-friendly crafts to keep the little leprechauns occupied:
