Crafty leprechauns, rainbows leading to golden riches, and a carte blanche excuse to pinch people? It’s no wonder kids can’t resist the playful spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. Grab a pair of scissors and a glue stick and celebrate this colorful holiday by crafting a few shamrocks, leprechauns, or pots o’ gold. Click through the photo gallery for a peek.

Satin Shamrock Headbands

Your little girl can rock a St. Patrick's Day-appropriate hairstyle with this awesome idea from Club Chica Circle. Older kids can help burn the edges of the satin to give it a curled look, while younger ones can cut out the shamrock shapes and glue the pieces together.

Which one is your fave? Do you have any other St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas up your sleeve?
