St. Patrick's Day is coming up on March 17! For anyone looking for some fun crafts for kids beyond the usual shamrocks and Blarney stones, how about making some rainbows -- you know, where Leprechauns keep their pot of gold. Rainbow crafts are the perfect place to start when getting crafty for St. Paddy's Day. 

We've rounded up some fun and cheery kid crafts that are perfect for everyone's favorite Irish holiday. Each project is simple and calls for a pretty basic list of materials found at any craft store -- and maybe even around the house! 

Added bonus: since rainbows are pretty and happy-making but aren't tied exclusively to St. Paddy's Day, kids (and their parents) can enjoy these homemade creations well beyond the holiday. So consider these crafts the perfect rainy day activities year-round!
