/2/  Pot O’ Gold at the End of the Rainbow – I love to find a craft that uses “old school” craft supplies. I mean, how much fun are pipe cleaners and sequins!

/3/  Rainbow Sensory Collage – This craft is perfect for little hands. You could gather the supplies for them, or go on a scavenger hunt for little things in all colors of the rainbow together. Either way, the finished product will be bright and cheery!

/4/ Paper Rainbow – No special cutting tools required. If you can cut a circle and a straight line, you can make this! This would be a wonderful craft for kids learning to use safety scissors.


/5/  Four Leaf Clover Paper Art – I’ve yet to meet a kid who doesn’t love using a stapler. With proper supervision, of course, this four leaf clover is the perfect craft to let those little hands get in on some stapler action. Let him feel like a big kid!

/6/ Little Leprechaun Footprints – Those little piggies won’t be small forever. Capture them in paint and hang them on your walls year after year.

/8/ Pot O’ Gold Telescope – Go on a magic hunt for pesky leprechauns with homemade Pot O’ Gold Telescopes!
