Fun St Patricks Day Crafts for Kids Shamrock Necklace

Do you need to be Irish to do fun activities for kids on St Patrick’s Day? Out of habit I took down Valentine’s Day Door decoration and put up a wooden shamrock. My husband actually thanked me.

Since I am not Irish but my husband is, I want to share both of our traditions. I must admit the St. Patricks Day Crafts,  decor and recipes in our home are limited so I thought I would find some fun ways to beef it up! (Corn beef that is).

We hope you enjoy this St Patrick’s Day Crafts for kids idea, Shamrock Necklace and free printable.  Can’t wait for you to find these adorable and fun activities for kids to do for Saint Patricks Day like our Skittle Rainbow Gift Bags.
