St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner — and what better way to celebrate with the kids than to make some super cute crafts? Here are eight adorably simple St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids you can make with your little ones of many ages to bring a little luck o’ the Irish into your house.

1. Shamrock Straw Toppers. These pretty, shamrock-shaped straw toppers from Martha Stewart are a breeze to make and add a little St. Patrick’s Day flair to any drink. All you need are green straws, green card stock for the clover cut-outs and scissors, and you’re set! They’re sure to be a hit around the dinner table or at a party.

2. Rainbow Chain Craft. This rainbow chain decoration with a pot of gold at the bottom is the perfect art project to do with little kids because it’s colorful and cute but so easy too. All you need are construction paper, glue, scissors, tape, gold glitter and a little dental floss. When it’s all finished, you can hang it from the ceiling!

3. Paper Plate Leprechaun. Another sweet and simple craft that will make your kids smile: a leprechaun made out of a paper plate and construction paper, complete with curly orange beard and black top hat.

4. Clover Hair Pins. What little girl wouldn’t love these clover hair pins? They’re accessories you can make in a snap at home, and the result is just precious.

5. Miniature Blarney Stone. Making your own little Blarney Stone to kiss is an easy way to bring good luck into your home without having to travel all the way to Ireland. Plus what kid doesn’t love to collect rocks? This one will tickle everyone in the family pink — or green!

6. Shamrock Party Accessories. These shamrock party accessories from Martha Stewart are fab, whether you’re having a St. Paddy’s Day shindig or just want them for a festive family meal on March 17. You just need a green ink pad and a heart-shaped stamp and you’re in business!

7. Rainbow Mobile. How cute is this rainbow mobile, made from just a paper plate, some construction paper and green string? Another one you can hang up when you’re all finished, which will delight the kids to no end.


8. Shamrock Garlands. These dainty crepe-paper shamrock garlands couldn’t be easier to make, and they’re such a lovely, classic decoration to hang in the doorway, drape across the fireplace mantel or string along the staircase banister. You can even trim a St. Patrick’s Day cake with them!
