This St. Patrick’s Day rainbow jar craft is such a good fine motor skills activity for little kids.

First, have them help separate the candy into different piles, so that’s good for fine motor skills and color recognition. Then, have them put the candy into the jar, which is another way to work those fine motor skills.

This St. Patrick’s Day treat bucket is a really adorable craft idea.

If you do make this, and you use a galvanized bucket, just keep in mind that the rainbow handle isn’t safe to eat (since galvanized buckets aren’t food safe). But you can eat the gold coins because those are wrapped.

DIY Leprechaun Hats.

You can use leftover paper towel or wrapping paper rolls to make these too.

This looks like a sign you paid good money for in the store, so no one will expect that you made it yourself.
