Five St. Patrick’s Day Crafts Kids Will Love

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and at first you might think of this particular day as an, a-hem, “adult” holiday…there’s plenty of fun to be had for the kiddos, too!

Try one of these 5 cool crafts (and snacks) and celebrate with the little leprechauns in your life.

1. Skinny Shamrock Shake

A healthy(er) twist on the traditional Shamrock Shake, this delicious milkshake is actually hiding a little bit of spinach. Shhhh- don’t tell the kids. AND don’t forget to use Oakhurst Milk.


2. Pot O’ Gold Paper Chain

This cute craft requires only construction paper and a stapler. It’s great for helping older toddlers and young school-age kids with their scissor skills. Add a pot o’ gold at the end, or just make a rainbow chain for some fun household decorations.



3. Shamrock Hat

Your littles will love playing leprechaun in this adorable shamrock hat. All you need is a paper plate, some scissors and green markers or paint for a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft that makes for some super cute pictures, as well!


4. Rainbow Pudding

Here’s another yummy snack idea that will definitely impress the little ones. This “Rainbow Pudding” is really just vanilla- but the added magic of food coloring makes for a very festive treat. This recipe calls for pudding made from scratch, but we promise we won’t tell if you make it from a box.



5.    Beaded Shamrocks

This cool craft is great for developing fine motor skills in toddlers. Follow the instructions in the link to twist your pipe cleaners into shamrocks. Then, let the kids string beads for a fun St. Patrick’s Day keepsake.
