10 Fun St. Patrick’s Day Craft Ideas

Sharing is caring!

St. Patrick’s Day falls on a weekend this year, which means it’s a perfect time to get in some quality crafting. Here are ten fun St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas!

St. Patrick's Day

Rainbow Felt Magnet

I love this craft because it’s got life in it past the holiday. Of course, if you don’t think it’s festive enough, you could choose to cut out a pot of gold to put at one end of your rainbow to make it a little more “St. Patrick’s Day.”

Shamrock Toilet Paper Roll Stamp

You know you’ve been a parent too long when you feel the need to save every empty paper towel and toilet paper roll your house produces even if you have no idea why you’re doing it. Well, here’s something to do with them: stamp out an adorable shamrock!

St. Patrick’s Day Calming Bottle

While I would probably find another name if I was making this St. Patrick’s Day Calming Bottle craft with my kiddo (maybe “glitter jar” or something?), it’s still pretty awesome. And I don’t know about you, but I can find myself totally entranced by these bottles. Make one in yellow colors for a pot of gold, or use clear or blue soaps and rainbow sensory items for a rainbow-themed jar.

Walking Water Science Activity

Okay, this Walking Water Science Activity isn’t technically a craft—it says so right in the name. But it’s so pretty that I think it’s totally okay to sneak in a little bit of science.

Eraser-Stamped DIY St. Patrick’s Day Shirt

I’m such a Grinch about holiday shirts that are only going to get worn once, but this DIY St. Patrick’s Day shirt has me totally rethinking my stance. And it’s a perfect way to use up at least one of those damn birthday party goody bag pencils. Seriously, so. many. pencils.

Mini-Rainbow Pull-Apart Bread

Edible craft time! If you’re planning a big holiday meal, get the kids involved with this fun and easy pull-apart bread. (And I do mean easy: it’s store-bought biscuit dough.) The recipe suggests serving it with frosting and sprinkles, but you could just as easily serve it as the bread with your meal.

This little Leprechaun Stick Puppet is so cute I want to reach right through the screen and hug him!

Shamrock Charm

I especially like this Shamrock Charm Craft for older kids, who often get left out of the crafting fun. And yes, younger ones can still enjoy it—I know my seven-year-old would love to make a necklace or three to give to her besties.

3-D Over the Rainbow St. Patrick’s Day Craft

My favorite thing about this Over the Rainbow craft is that it offers both a glitter and a non-glitter option. Team Non-Glitter all the way. But seriously, how cute are those pennies?!

St. Patrick's Day

Four-Leaf Clover Hair Clips

These Four-Leaf Clover Hair Clips would look just as cute clipped onto a collar to give your kid just a hint of green—you know, enough to keep them from getting pinched. And if you don’t have St. Patrick’s Day buttons, you can get creative: use regular green buttons, add another smaller clover in another green felt (maybe one with sparkles!) or repeat the hunter green, or finish with a bow.
