I love St. Patricks Day. We have a Leprechaun that comes to visit each year (he never gets trapped of course) and my kids still love that he brings a box of Lucky Charms in the morning. I try to get creative each year, but time is not on my side with Girl Scout cookies lingering throughout March. Here are several easy St. Patricks Day crafts and snacks you’re kids will love to make.
Some of these crafts can easily be turned into a STEM lesson as well. We’ve done the Skittles science rainbow and our girls loved it. Not only do they get a science experiment, but they also get to sample the Skittles as we go.

Anything that includes making rainbows is also one of our favorite things to do. If you want to incorporate a weather lesson, now is the time to do so. Kids love to learn how rainbows form and will be looking out the window on those fun sunny and rainy days.
