Thank you for stopping by!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Whether you celebrate the day, or if you just enjoy the various green, shamrock, and rainbow crafts that accompany the day, I hope it is a good one! And if you do not celebrate St. Patrick's Day at all, happy Monday! Here is a roundup of our St. Patrick's Day crafts and activities, and some of my favorites from other blogs. Check them out if you are looking for a last minute idea for today or some ideas to pin for next year!

And some St. Patricks Day crafts and activities from many other great blogs (all can be found on my St. Patrick's Day Pinterest board as well)!

1. I love this rainbow spaghetti from Fun at Home with Kids! (and you have to check out her series of five posts from last year, helping a leprechaun find his gold - this is the final post which has links to the first four posts - I cannot wait to try these when Skyler is older! So so cool!!)

2. These rainbow sun catchers from Fireflies and Mud Pies are so beautiful!

3. This super stretchy rainbow treasure slime from Growing a Jeweled Rose looks like a blast!

4. I have seen bell pepper shamrock prints, like this one from Learn ~ Play ~ Imagine, and love how simple but perfectly shaped they are!

5. No surprise that I love hand and foot print crafts! (there are six different links hidden in there :) ) This shamrock footprint craft from Sassy Dealz is so adorable!

6. Also from Sassy Dealz, these wine cork shamrocks remind me a lot of our carrot print shamrocks. Such an easy and sweet decoration!

7. The baking soda fine motor play from Little Bins for Little Hands is awesome! We will definitely be doing this one next year!

8. I love the idea of using straws as a painting tool. These St. Patrick's Day straw painted shamrocks from Mess for Less are great!

Edit: Our attempt at a foot print shamrock this afternoon - not exactly as pictured in the sample picture haha. My little one is quite flat footed, but we had fun ;)

I love Skyler's little footprints across the side of our poster board.
