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.
All the crafts I’ve featured are in the same order as you can see them in the image below, but as normal I’ve added a few extra for you so make sure you check them all out!
