Growing up St. Patrick’s Day was never a big deal at our house; wearing green that day was as big as it got. This year my husband surprised me by suggesting we hide some “gold” (A.K.A. chocolate) coins for the kids. Not to be outdone by Daddy’s fun idea, I thought we would do a few crafts to prepare for the gold hunt.
The first one we did was super easy.
I knew my daughter would like some fun curls for her girl Leprechaun, so I curled a few strips of orange paper. And, of course, cut out a bow for her hat.
My daughter is really in to drawing rainbows lately, so, of course, we HAD to make a rainbow with a pot of gold.
For this one I cut the colored tissue paper up into small squares ahead of time. Then I drew the rainbows on the paper for them, allowing plenty of space in each row for them to glue lots of colored squares.
I love how their individual tastes shine through in these!
Did you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day growing up? Do you do anything special for it now?
