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.

Shamrock Suncatchers

Hands on As We Grow came up with this light-catching craft that's perfect for tiny tots. Kiddos can go wild arranging tissue paper and glitter, then just keep it in place with contact paper.

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