Collage of St. Patrick's Day crafts including stencil shamrocks and paper plate crafts

While there are lots of images of leprechauns and rainbows on St. Patrick’s Day, green is one of the most prominent colors of any St. Patrick’s Day decor. From four-leaf clovers to Irish colors, you’ll find green in just about any St. Patrick’s Day-themed item! If you are looking for a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft for your kids, you are in luck! These easy projects are all green, so they’re the perfect craft to make for St. Patrick’s Day! Plus, you can get in on the fun too! Here are 20 green St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids to make.

St. Patrick’s Day is something we always participate in, I’m Irish and every chance we have to participate in an experience to celebrate our culture and have fun with it is always a hit at home! Whether you choose to celebrate traditionally or just have some leprechaun mischief or green happenings around the house, there are no shortages of fun activities to be had with over 20 easy crafts kids can make to have fun leading up to St. Patrick’s Day and beyond.

Our family is notorious for a little bit of mischief, green cereal milk in the morning or green glitter mysteriously around the house (moms favourite.. yikes!), or just fun gold coins stashed to find, you can have so much fun with all things green!

I wish I could pick my absolute favourites from this list but there is such a great variety of different St. Patrick’s Day crafts that suit all ages that I definitely recommend trying out as many as you can. You can also try out our Leprechaun Goo recipe for a fun sensory play activity or any of these 7 crafts and treats to make as well. The possibilities are endless!

Many of these crafts are easily made with items you likely already have at home or can be picked up at your local dollar store. We tend to keep a folder of holiday coloured craft paper and accessories sorted for easy to grab activities when we need a screen break or a rainy day hits and it’s worked out very well for us (and for my organizational loving self!)

If you’re feeling super crafty, a lot of these crafts can also be altered for other holidays as well. Instead of cutting out Shamrocks, try cutting out Christmas trees and decorating with red, green or gold or make yourself an elf hat instead of a Leprechaun! We plan to make a few different holiday bleach shirts as every kid loves wearing something they’ve made themselves so we know they’ll be a big hit.
