Shamrocks. The quintessential St. Patrick’s Day decor. Prior to having kiddos, celebrating this holiday involved consuming green beer. Now with two little guys we are finding out its more about shamrocks, lucky charms, leprechauns and not getting pinched. One of my little ones enjoys crafting so much that I’m excited to try some of these super cute easy shamrock crafts for kids with him!

Easy Shamrock Crafts for Kids
- This paper strip shamrock is super easy and only requires different colored green paper (assuming you have scissors, a stapler and a glue gun laying around).
- I love that this rainbow clover craft isn’t all green–the rainbow colors are bright, cheery and fit in with the whole pot of gold theme perfectly!
- Here’s another paper craft that can be easily done with some glue and scrap green paper. The mosaic pattern shamrock is excellent for the toddler who only wants to stick a few pieces on, all the way up to the teen who is meticulous and wants it to be a work of art.
- Ok, so stick with me on this one. Paint. I know it’s hard for some and easier for others. My little guys love to paint and I hate the mess. This is kind of a best of both worlds solution. Marble paint a shamrock. You simply cut out the shamrock shape, place it into a plastic container, add some green paint, drop in a marble or ball, put a lid securely on and let them shake it all around. Super cute.
- For some of our older kid crafters, this felt shamrock craft turned out adorable. They used it as a hair clip but it could go on a blouse or a backpack or anywhere really.
- I think it’s a thing of beauty when crafting comes together to make something both festive as well as edible. If my kids are anything like yours they love to snack all day long. So this green chocolate covered pretzel shamrock would get their creative juices flowing and then would allow some instant gratification when they get to gobble theirs up.
- Remember earlier when I mentioned that on the list of things kids get excited/concerned about is the pinching? Well this easy shamrock craft for kids would be a genius way to craft and prevent any unnecessary pinches. Anyone would enjoy this polkadot shamrock tee. After a quick paper plate stencil you just need some green paint and a pencil eraser to make the dots–how clever and fun!
- For those of us who are quite crafty and feeling ambitious, this shamrock mason jar is awesome. Plus it has green and gold glitter. Whats not to love?
- Maybe your crafter is old enough to use a glue gun and you would like to enlist their help in making your front door more spirited. With some foam shamrock cutouts you can have a new lucky clover wreath in no time.
- Perhaps you are recovering from Christmas and Valentine’s Day festivities and have very few supplies at your disposal. As long as you have some green crayons here is a cute shamrock coloring page.
- Who doesn’t like hand print art? Here are some cute shamrock hand print ideas.
To make crafting even easier, pick up these foam shamrocks – give the kids some construction paper and a glue stick and let them get after it!
