7 St. Patrick's Day Crafts for Kids

St. Patrick's Day may be the most overlooked holiday in my home. Well, there's Arbor Day and Groundhog Day...but, do those count? I should probably care more about Arbor Day. Trees give us oxygen. We need oxygen to survive. I digress.

I like to think of myself as a pretty crafty mom. I enjoy doing crafts with the kids. I LOVE to hang their art up around our home. I was once told that my house looked more like a daycare than a home because of all of my kid's art. And to that I think to myself, that's okay. My kids LOVE seeing their art hanging on the four walls that are their safe place. {Do you hang your kid's art? In one place or all over?}

St Patty's Day Kids Crafts

This year I plan to do more St. Patty's Day crafts! Today I've gathered 7 St. Patrick's Day Crafts that you and your kiddos can do together. I love each one of them for a different reason. But, my favorite is probably the last one. You'll see why!
