St Patrick's Day craft ideas

St Patrick's Day is celebrated on 17 March and commemorates the anniversary of St Patrick's one of Ireland's most well known patron saints. According to legend, St. Patrick used the 3-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people, which is why green has become such a strong symbol of St Patrick's Day.

This week we have some Irish themed craft ideas you might like to try and in honour of the festivities we leave you with this Irish blessing: May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Blarney Stone Green coloured pet rocks which may bring you the gift of the gab if you kiss them.

Stand-up Shamrocks Toilet rolls are once again transformed into lovely little works of art.

Leprechaun Footprints An all ages activity which uses lots of green crayons and paint.

Shamrock Painting Use bubble wrap as a paint dabber in this simple project.

Pot of Gold A great fine motor activity for younger children who will enjoy cutting the coins and applying glue to create this pot of gold.

Rainbow plates Create a gorgeous rainbow for your pot of gold!

Shamrock Tree This could be a great group activity and will result in a big tree to adorn the walls of your service.

Wreath This rainbow coloured wreath would be another pretty addition to the walls in your service.

Paper Plate Shamrock Another good activity for younger kids.
