Layered Felt Rainbow Magnet from Crafts by Amanda
This cute magnet can be made easily by layering different color felt. Not only are they a great St. Patrick’s Day decoration but you can leave them up all year long. Now, if only you could get a pot of gold to appear at the end of the rainbow…
Shamrock Sun Catchers from Crystal and Co.
A few pieces of wax paper, colored shredded paper, and an iron make this project happen. Take advantage of sales on Easter grass right now and use it to light your suncatcher. Little ones will need adult help to seal the two sides together.
Four Leaf Clover Paper Art from Meaningful Mama
This craft is the ultimate quick project. Green colored strips and a stapler are all that’s needed. You could use a white crayon to color on the strips and add designs to make it a little more personalized. Or, create a field of four leaf clovers for pretend play activities.
Easy Rainbow Craft for Kids from 7 on a Shoestring
Not only is this adorable but it can serve as a learning tool too. Incorporate math skills such as guessing and counting how many of each color cereal will be needed to complete the design. Practice sorting and motor skills when arranging and gluing on the pieces.
Embroidery Hoop Rainbow from Uncommon Designs
Easy? Check. Cute? Check. Reuseable? Check! This couldn’t get any easier, and how fun would it be to place a big bowl full of candy (gold of course) underneath on the morning of St. Patrick’s Day? This is another project that can be used through the spring season.
Bucket O’Gold Candy from 31 Designs
Everyone loves gold but if you don’t find a bucket o’gold this year, you can at least find a bucket of gold candy. Kids will have a great time making this craft, but maybe even more fun eating their loot!
Hand Tinted Shamrock Mason Jars from Club Chica Circle
This craft might not be suitable for the youngest hands but older kids and even teenagers can join in to create these jars. Fill them up with gold coins or a variety of gold wrapped candy and give them away to special people in your life.
Styrofoam Cup Leprechaun Hats from Crafts by Amanda
While you’ll need an oven to complete this craft the final results are adorable. You’ll need a little more time and patience for this, but elementary aged children are the perfect fit to complete these.

Those pesky Leprechauns are quick, but here’s a simple trap that is sure to do the trick. Of course, the secret is in the bait! No skills are required, so it is perfect for preschoolers.
