Happy St. Patrick's Day, by the way! It seems I've waited till the last minute to share a few fun ideas for the kiddies on this day o' green. At my house holidays tend to get celebrated the entire month. Time to get our craft on! Whether you make one or more of these up to surprise the kids for later or let them make something themselves, they're sure to be happy with these fun St. Patty's Day crafts!
The first comes from Beth Proudfoot. It is a really easy and fun favor for St. Patrick's Day. All you need are a few long cellophane bags, rainbow twizzlers, and chocolate coins. You can download the custom 3" tag here.
Next is another cute little treat for the kids. This idea comes from Eighteen25. Everybody loves Lucky Charms. Especially the kids! Here is a cute way to share them. All you need is snack sized ziplock baggies, 5x7 pieces of card stock, and the topper. You can download it here. The girls at Eighteen25 have detailed instructions on what to do so click away on their name above!
For the first time I recently learned about leprechaun traps. They are the cutest thing! And I love how many different styles there are. I talk about them like they're a pair of shoes. The Crafting Chicks bring us this darling little leprechaun trap that doesn't require a ton of supplies. It is a pirouette cookie can covered in scrapbook paper. They've made a little paper ladder to go up the side of this Gold Vault with a Keep Off sign that the leprechaun will most likely ignore. And there's no way for him to get out!
This last one comes from Lizard & Ladybug and is similar to the other Lucky Charm baggies. This one is a little different from the first but equally cute! You can download the tags here.
I must mention as well that The Crafting Chicks have also come up with the CUTEST little treasure hunt ever. It is called Leprechaun Treasure Hunt where you follow the colors of the rainbow. The first shamrock is rainbow colored and gives a clue to the next shamrock of a certain color. It goes for a few different colors till it guides the kids to the treasure. So cute!!! Must check it out here.
