March Kids Craft Club, Five St. Patty’s Day Crafts, and Party Crafts

Chasing Rainbows – February Kids Craft Club

Rainbow Image Weather Crafts and Rainbow Crafts from the  Kids Craft Club!   If you’re not already in the club, there’s one week left to subscribe for this craft package.

The weather in March is often unpredictable, leaving us ‘puzzled’ about what to expect day after day.  Make your own weather puzzle with this month’s Kids Craft Club supplies.


And, with St. Patrick’s Day falling in the middle of the month, kids are on the lookout for leprechans and pots of gold.  We know where leprechauns hide their treasure, but for some reason it seems like we can never catch the rainbows that we spy!  Make some special rainbow chasing glasses and wear them to complete your rainbow chasing mission.

Subscribe by February 23rd to receive this craft package at the beginning of March.

Five Crafty Idea and Activities for St. Patrick’s Day

Treasure Hunt

The quintessential St. Patty’s Day activity – set up a treasure hunt with some coins, a piggy bank, or a special treat as the hidden treasure.  Offer written clues (clue one leads to clue two, clue two leads to clue three, etc) or play hot/cold (you’re getting colder, warmer, hotter!) until the kids discover their treasure.  Continue the game by letting someone else hide the treasure next round.

Green Celebration Lunch

Veggies can be fun if they follow a theme, and this theme is all green!  Include serving plates of lettuce and cucumbers, along with bowls of peas and broccoli (cooked or raw).  If your kids are hesitant to eat their veggies, include a side of their favourite dip (ours like ranch dressing), or serve the veggies in a novel way – our girl loves frozen peas and eats them by the handful while frozen, but won’t eat them cooked.

Leprechaun Beard and Moustache

Cut some construction paper into the shape of a pointed beard and a curly moustache, then decorate with brown, black, gold, or orange yarn.  Scotch tape below your lip and on your chin – your leprechaun face will help with the treausure hunting for sure!

Handprint Clover / Shamrock

Trace two sets of handprints on green paper and cut them out. Tape or glue them together on a green construction paper stem, in the shape of a four leaf clover.  Add some green sparkles if you have them on hand.  Super easy, and handprint crafts are always a big hit!  Let the kids practice their cutting skills by doing their own cutting of the handprints.


Another simple craft but a great way to learn the colours of the rainbow and to practice patterns.  Cut rainbow strips from coloured papers and make a rainbow chain to string across the room.  Put the strips in correct rainbow order – red, orange, yellow, green, blue purple, repeat.  This is a fun craft for a few kids to help with – everyone at daycare or playgroup can take turns finding and adding the next colour to the chain.
