Get Creative with St. Patrick’s Day Crafts
For most, St. Patrick’s Day parties mean a day of fun. From a young age, children learn that St. Patrick’s Day is about the color green—wearing it, eating green-colored food, and coloring pictures of shamrocks. Why not have more fun than creating the traditional shamrock picture?
Create a fun, festive St. Patrick’s Day party for the kids in your life and come up with some crafts for the kids to take part in. Use cute decorations to catch attention and make the kids smile. Start by decorating the entryway to your St. Patrick’s Day party with a rainbow balloon arch for your kids to walk under. Line the walkway with a gold or yellow plastic tablecloth and have the kids follow the yellow road. Then, when they walk under the balloon arch, toss some shamrock-shaped confetti into the air to surprise them. Give the kids green, gold, and white beads as quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day party favors. Keep their attention with a leprechaun standee that they can take pictures in!
Crafts & Favors Make St. Patrick’s Day Parties Fun
Rather than simply having your kids color a picture of a shamrock or a picture of a rainbow, make a shamrock-shaped cake and have the kids break into groups to decorate them. Remember when you plan the party, have the kids ask their parents for old shirts that they can use to protect their St. Patrick’s Day party clothes.
Favors at your St. Patrick’s Day party can range from lollipops to personalized cookie tins to gold coins. Send your kids home with adorable St. Patrick’s Day favor boxes filled with these goodies and more. You can also include personalized lip glosses for the girls and personalized gum for the boys.
Include your kids this holiday. Have fun, be safe, and let them enjoy a party for a reason other than a birthday.
