St. Patrick’s Day Pot Of Gold Cookies
These St. Patrick’s Day Pot Of Gold Cookies are one of the easiest treats you can make to celebrate the holiday.
You start with a store-bought cookie and all you’re doing is decorating it to look like a pot of gold with a rainbow on top.
DIY St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Jar Craft
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.
DIY St. Patrick’s Day Treat Bucket
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 (Made from a toilet paper roll)
Toilet paper rolls are upcycled to make these adorable leprechaun hats. Set them on skewers are display them in flower pots, vases, or just around your house.
You can use leftover paper towel or wrapping paper rolls to make these too.
DIY “Lucky In Love” Shamrock Shiplap Sign
This Lucky In Love shiplap sign is so incredible inexpensive to make. It should cost you about $2 to make, and that’s if you don’t have foam board at home already.
This looks like a sign you paid good money for in the store, so no one will expect that you made it yourself.
Pretzels and candy melts are combined to make these adorable Shamrock Pretzels. They’re really easy to make and look like you bought them.
Mint Chocolate Bark
This Mint Chocolate Bark doesn’t scream St. Patrick’s Day, unless you serve it on St. Patrick’s Day. You can make it any day of the year, but the green and white candy bark works best on March 17.
