St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and if you know me, you know that I love my holidays. My home decor is regularly changing throughout the year to match the season or holiday.
This year St. Patrick’s Day falls right in the middle of Spring Break and since I will have all 3 boys home during this time I thought I should start looking for some fun activities for us to do. And so began my search for St. Patrick’s Day activities that would be fun for all ages.
Here are some of the ones I have put on our to-do list for this year:
Stained glass tissue paper shamrocks from Honey & Lime. This is a nice and simple craft, with not a whole lot of prep work, this is even something that I could have my toddler take part in.
Egg carton Shamrock Craft from Play & Learn Every day. I knew I was saving those egg cartons for a reason! What kid doesn’t love to paint, this is be something we can put together and use them as decor on our mantel.
St. Patrick’s Day Printable Paper Doll from Kids Activities Blog. This is something that will likely keep the attention of my older son as it will involve lots of coloring and cutting out. This is a very cute idea to build their creative minds.
Leprechaun Goo from BC Mom. What child doesn’t love a little messy sensory fun! Are you familiar with sensory play? Sensory play allows children to be in complete control of their actions and experiences, which boosts their confidence in decision making and inspires their eagerness to learn and experiment.
Four Left Clover “I’m Lucky because” craft from The Mommy Mix. I love this one! With a preschooler at home, we are always looking for activities to do with him that will help to prepare him for Kindergarten next year. This has some tracing, cutting, gluing and the best part they get to think of a reason why they are lucky.
DIY Paper Plate Loom Rainbow Yarn Art from Sugar/Spice & Glitter. I picked this one more for my older son (and me), to keep his mind working while he is on Spring Break.
I hope that this helped you to bring out your creative juices and gave you some ideas for activities to do with your children this year.
