17 Saint Patrick's crafts and activities for kids

As a child, I never actually celebrated Saint Patrick's Day, even though my father's name is Patrick! My family and I would wish him a happy day with tongue in cheek. I discovered Saint Patrick's Day as an adult and the many wonderful crafting opportunities that accompany it. So, in preparation for this St. Patty's, I thought I'd share some of my favourite green themed crafts with you!

1. Watercolor Shamrock Cards - These beautiful watercolor cards by Hello, wonderful are like snowflakes... No two paint patterns will turn out the same!
