15 Super Fun Rainbow Crafts for Kids

St. Patrick’s Day is a great holiday for children!  It is such a magical day full of shamrocks, leprechauns, and pots of gold at the ends of rainbows, all of which naturally lend themselves to fun and creative craft projects like these 15 Wonderful St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Crafts.

One of my favorite things about these projects is how versatile they are.  Each project is simple enough that young children can enjoy them, but creative enough that older children and adults will have fun with them too.

15 Wonderful Rainbow Crafts for Kids. Perfect for either St. Patrick's Day or a children's birthday party.

Many of these craft ideas are made with simple items you already have around your house.  Some are made with more specialty items, like Perler Beads or ribbons, but in my house, these items are commonplace.

I am also a big fan of activities that spark creativity and a sense of wonder in children and these 15 Wonderful St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Crafts are perfect for that.  So whip up a batch of some yummy green goodies, play and sing some Irish folk songs, and get busy making beautiful rainbows!  But make sure to keep an eye on your surroundings. All that fun and frivolity might just capture the attention of a leprechaun or two!
