Finger Paint Rainbow
I found this adorable activity from @my_busy_kid on Instagram and couldn’t resist trying it! All you have to do is draw a black pot, throw some glitter on the top (there’s your gold), and let your toddler finger paint a rainbow out of the pot! Find the full activity here.
Pot of Gold
Draw an outline of a pot of gold (or find our download here). Let kids use a sponge to paint the pot and coins.
Fill small container with cotton balls and let kids use a dropper to color their “clouds” with different colors. We used food coloring mixed with water.
Sponge Paint a 4-Leaf Clover
Draw an outline of a 4-leaf clover and cut up a sponge. Let your little one dab the sponge in some green paint and fill in their 4-leaf clover!
Leprechaun Coloring Sheets
These coloring sheets are a great way to entertain the kids for a bit. Download your coloring sheets here.
St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt
This activity was so easy and so fun to put together. Download your Scavenger Hunt here
Hide gold coins around your yard or house and send your kids on a coin hunt to fill their pots! Buys you a few minutes of time to sit and drink your coffee.
Make Kid-Sized Leprechaun Hats
Use a paper plate as base and use cardstock to wrap around in a cylinder as the top of the “hat”. Attach the “hat” to the plate, and add a string to go under your child’s chin! Simple as that!
Make a Leprechaun Beard
All you need is a paper plate, glue, some orange tissue paper, and a string. Cut your plate into the shape of the beard, rip up the tissue paper and help your child glue it on the plate. Add your string (don’t forget to measure it around your child’s head first!) and you’re good to go!
Such a fun little activity to do the night before St. Patrick’s Day! The kids got a lot of inspiration from the book “How to Catch a Leprechaun”. Our DIY Leprechaun Traps are coming soon, so be sure to subscribe below to be the first to see!
