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!
