St. Patrick’s Day is still a little ways away, but it’s never too early to start crafting! While it may not be one of the biggest, most widely celebrated holidays out there, St. Patrick’s Day is not only an amazing teaching opportunity, but also just plain fun. Leprechauns, with their bright red hair, and big green hats are the most popular St. Paddy’s Day images alongside shamrocks. These crafts are simple enough for the kids to complete themselves and while they don’t come with their own pots of gold, they’re still super awesome!
