7 St. Patrick's Day Crafts and Activities for Kids

Crafts, science fun, and class rewards with a St. Patrick’s Day theme are a great way to work the holiday into your lesson plans.  The seven ideas below are fun and inexpensive, but will keep your students entertained and on-task.  Whether you have an hour to celebrate or only 15-minutes, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Kids

Leprechaun Paper Plate Craft

A white paper plate, some green construction paper for a hat and red construction paper for a curly Irish beard and your class will be brimming with lucky leprechauns.

Catch a Rainbow Experiment

Add a bit of color to your science experiment fun with this catch a rainbow activity. Easy to prepare and inexpensive to implement, this is a terrific craft for large classes.

Pot of Gold Rainbow Craft

Where is the leprechaun’s lucky pot of gold? Under this string of rainbow loops! Great for fine motor coordination skills, this craft involves cutting, taping, gluing, and all of the skills little learners need to be successful.

Lucky Sprouting Shamrock

A science experiment and fun combined in one.  Watch alfalfa seeds sprout on your shamrock shaped sponge just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Leprechaun Puppet

Print out the free puppet template and have students create leprechauns.  They are perfect for impromptu skits and St. Paddy’s Day fun.

St. Patrick’s Day Play Dough

Combine the ingredients and start squishing! This easy play dough recipe is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day with its light green color and sparkly gold glitter.  Use it as part of a craft or in a St. Patrick’s Day Creation Station!

Crayon Resist Shamrock Painting

Kids love to paint and while it can be a slightly messy time in the classroom, it’s also a great way to engage them in learning.  Crayon resist paintings teach them about colors, blending, and the way a waxy surface resists paint. So, break out the brushes and let your students create!
