20 Adorable St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids
It’s the season to celebrate everything shamrock, leprechaun and gold! Do it with our adorable St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids and the kids at heart!
Every region in the world has its own set of traditions and holidays, enthusiastically celebrated by the people of that region. So it’s really lovely when this holiday extends across borders, and people take it up across the globe. The first holiday that comes to mind that has gained global appeal has got to be St. Patrick’s Day!
Celebrated in March, this is originally an Irish holiday, but now it’s quite a big deal in other countries, especially the United States. So much so that no sooner are the red and pink Valentine decorations taken down, than the green ones go up for St. Paddy’s!
We’re also getting into the spirit of shamrocks, rainbows and pots of gold with some adorable St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids. Who knows, maybe some of the magic will rub off on us too!
20 Adorable St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids
1. DIY Shamrock Photo Frame
We can’t think of a cuter gift for grandparents this St. Patrick’s day than this cute little photo frame from Simple Everyday Mom! Seriously, how can a shamrock get this cute?
2. DIY Leprechaun Hats
Whether you’re putting on a show for St. Patrick’s Day or just feel like bringing out your inner leprechaun, we have something that’ll make it very easy – a DIY leprechaun top hat!
3. Toilet Roll Leprechaun Craft
Did you know that according to folklore, leprechauns are actually shoemakers? Apparently, that’s how they earn all those pots of gold! Try making this little cardboard tube leprechaun instead!
4. Pot of Gold Paper Plate Craft
If only we all got our hands on that elusive pot of gold that is so talked about on St. Paddy’s Day! While that may be a distant dream, you can still have some fun with this paper plate pot of gold from The Simple Parent.
5. St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Popsicle Stick Craft
Leprechaun experts (yes, they exist) say that leprechauns are all male, and there are no female leprechauns. Probably explains why every leprechaun worth his salt is shown with a prominent beard!
6. Shamrock Man Craft
Is he a shamrock or a leprechaun? Actually, he’s neither – he’s the shamrock man! This craft from The Resourceful Mama is super cute and you can fun making this guy dance!
7. Pot of Gold Fine Motor Activity
If you’d like to strengthen those little muscles while also celebrating the holiday, try out this pot of gold activity from Mess for Less for some fine motor practice.

Wow, those pots of gold look real, don’t they? Glam up your St. Paddy’s day with this craft that uses lots of golden sequins and bling!
9. Sparkly Shamrock Wand
Speaking of bling, we love this sparkly wand from This Mom’s Confessions! Perfect if you intend to dress up as a special St. Paddy’s princess in a green dress!
10. Rainbow Toilet Roll Binoculars
Having trouble spotting that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Maybe these multicolored binoculars from Crafty Morning will help you find it!

This half wreath from Crazy Craft Lady is so unique and elegant at the same time, we can’t wait to make it and hang it up on our walls. Perfect if you’re planning a party for St. Paddy’s day!

Cupcake liners are very versatile to craft with, and this project here shows us how a circular cupcake liner can turn into a rainbow cloud and a shamrock.
13. St Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Houses
Leprechauns make shoes and they guard their pots of gold – but where do they live? A Mother Thing brings us the answer – in these adorable little candy leprechaun houses!
14. St Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Gnomes
This craft from Baker Ross is so simple to make, it’s ridiculous! We love the asymmetry of the shamrock and the pot of gold hanging on either side of this mobile. Try making it on a large scale for a grand project!
15. St Patrick and Brigid Craft
Amidst all the leprechauns and pots of gold, we tend to forget the person the holiday is named after – St. Patrick! Catholic Icing brings the focus to the saint with this simple craft.
16. Craft Sticks Rainbow Craft
The Resourceful Mama has a project that’s easy enough for primary school goers to attempt on their own or for preschoolers to try with help. Great for kids learning about the order of colors in the rainbow.

Have some fun with these leprechaun hats from Kids Craft Room by blowing into them and seeing those strands fly! You can also add a strap and try wearing for some quirk!
