These Saint Patrick’s Day crafts featuring leprechauns are fun to make with kids.
Creating crafts and playing Saint Patrick’s Day themed games is a great family-friendly way to celebrate March 17 with children.
Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day more than leprechauns (OK maybe shamrocks) with their bright red or orange hair and big green hats.
I love that these craft ideas are simple enough for preschool, kindergarten, and kids of all ages to complete themselves or with minimal assistance. They are perfect projects to do at home or in the classroom.
