17 Sweet & Simple Shamrock Crafts for Kids to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day


St. Patrick's Day is one of the low-key holidays for most parents. We buy some Lucky Charms, make sure the kids have a green shirt, and prepare some corned beef with cabbage for dinner. But just because St. Patrick's doesn't have the "spring Christmas" vibe of other major beginning-of-the-year holidays, like Easter or Valentine's Day, doesn't mean we have to forego being festive. With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, it's time to get out the leprechauns and the pots of gold -- and to get the shamrocks ready.


And this year, why not involve the kids in making some sweet St. Paddy's Day decor? Here, we've put together the ultimate list of clover- and shamrock-themed DIY crafts that are cute, creative, and most importantly, super easy for kids to make. It doesn't take much to put these together, and they'll add festive charm to every room. Plus, as a bonus, having all these little green shamrocks around just might bring some extra luck into the house!
