Rainbow Magnet

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

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.

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.

Rainbow Craft

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.

Pot of Gold Treat Bucket
