St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Hello, friends.  After yesterday's post whetted your appetite, I thought you might be in the mood for a few St. Patrick's Day crafts.  Don't worry--these are so simple you've got plenty of time to get your St. Patty's Day craft on before tomorrow.  Remember, just click the pictures to see how to make 'em.

Let's start with these cute leprechaun footprints.  Those sneaky green guys are always up to something!

Maybe those footprints will lead you to the leprechaun's treasure at the end of the rainbow.

And speaking of rainbows...

Yes, I know this one isn't very pretty, but you should click on it anyway.  Great learning opportunities right there.  Symmetry, color mixing, physics.  Seriously.  Check it out.  And I know yours will be much prettier because you will use higher quality paint.

Did you know that St. Patrick is credited with driving all of the snakes out of Ireland?  It's true.  There are no snakes in Ireland.  And people say St. Patrick is responsible.  Let's just not dwell on the fact that there probably never were any snakes in Ireland, and make this cute little snake instead.  Maybe your kids will even want to make a green one.  Totally some great opportunities for scissor skills and patterning right there.

Legend has it that St. Patrick used a shamrock to illustrate the concept of the Trinity: one God in three persons.  One leaf with three leaflets.  So you can make one like this.

Or this.

Or using recycled TP tubes--don't forget to paint them green.  And talk about St. Patrick.  And God.

Happy St. Patrick's craft making!
