St Patricks Day Crafts for 3 Year Olds

Three is a funny old age, creative enough to want to do some crafting, but also way too young to make some of the super pretty things that you see on Pinterest, that’s not to say though that they shouldn’t get to join in on the fun! I asked some lovely bloggers to share with me their St Patricks Day crafts for three year olds, not just the stuff that three year olds could theoretically make but the things that they really did do with their three year olds. I know that these are great crafts because my own three year old spied them over my shoulder and told me that she wanted to make them right now! Doing a round up of things my own kids want to make? Yep, that’s totally what I’m doing today, and I hope your kids love these St Patricks Day crafts and activities just as much.

    These are so lovely! We usually miss out on celebrating St Patrick’s day as it’s so close to my daughter’s birthday, but I reckon we can make time for one or two of these!

    Oh what lovely ideas. My kids are older but I remember when we used to make pasta necklaces, I’m sure they’d still love something like that. I’ve pinned for later.
