Using a Lucky Shamrock Name Craft to Work on Fine Motor Skills

It’s your lucky day! I have a super cute Shamrock Name Craft your kids will enjoy creating this March as they celebrate all things leprechauns and St. Patrick’s Day. It’s simple to prep and so much fun to put together!

I want you to imagine this: Your kids are seated quietly at their tables with craft materials in hand. They are all coloring, gluing, and chatting quietly as you read your favorite March read-aloud. They use a pre-made shamrock to finish their craft. When they are done, you hang them on the wall so they can enjoy their hard work!

If that sounds nice, continue reading to see how your students can create adorable St. Patrick’s Day crafts.

Fun Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day With Kids

I know it can be tough to plan all the fun things for a silly holiday, but students appreciate it! If you are looking for fun activities to excite students and keep them engaged during March, try these ideas!

Read Fun Leprechaun Books: Choose from various silly St. Patrick’s Day texts to read to your class. Use them to introduce lessons or a fun holiday. They are also fantastic for a craft lesson! Here are a few:

Invite Kids to Make a Trap: Since those pesky leprechauns are running around, someone has to catch them. Let your students use scrap materials to make a simple trap, then set them up overnight and see if they do the trick.

Leave a Little Chaos: The night before St. Patrick’s Day, use paint to make tiny footprints on your floors and table tops. Knock a few things over or mix some materials to confuse students and get them giggling.

Make Leprechaun Crafts: Allow students to create their own Leprechaun Craft to adorn the walls. They are super cute and simple to create!

  • Light green and dark green construction paper
