St. Patricks Day Activities and Crafts for Kids

It’s almost March — which means all things green, leprechauns, and shamrocks! With the help of some great bloggers, I compiled this awesome list of St. Patrick’s Day activities, crafts, and printables to help you celebrate! Enjoy ☘️

St. Patrick’s Day Activities and Crafts

Since I was a young girl, St. Patrick’s Day has always been my jam!

There’s just something about this holiday I can’t ever seem to get enough of.

Maybe it’s the excitement about wearing green while pinching others who are not wearing green and creating fun St. Patrick’s Day crafts with my kiddos, or perhaps it’s our family tradition of making homemade reuben sandwiches together.

Either way, I absolutely love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day each year!

That said, I had so much fun putting together this awesome list of St. Patrick’s Day activities, crafts, and printables that make for some incredible March family fun!

Check them out, you guys! 

Shamrock Crafts for Kids

Shamrocks are definitely my go-to when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day crafting with my own kiddos!

Not only are they iconic, but they are incredibly simple and super festive.

These shamrock crafts look like so much fun too!

Life & Homeschool Author

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey! 

Just a Note…

Thanks for checking out the kid activities portion of the blog! 

Typically summer is the most productive time for my blog. However, our family is currently living in temporary housing and we do not see an end in sight (thank you housing marking 😪) — meaning my workspace & supplies to produce quality content it extremely limited.

I am still working, but it’s nothing like normal.

As always, we appreciate your patience!
