St Patricks Day Crafts for KidsFor me St Patrick’s Day always heralds the start of spring.
The bright green of the shamrocks …

… the colours of the rainbow…

… and all that leprachaun mischief promise sunshine and laughter after the gloom of late winter.

I just hope the snow has gone and the floods receded by March 17th

But if the weather is still lousy, these super simple, super fun St Patrick’s Days crafts for kids will keep us all from going cabin crazy… and if you’re running out of inspiration for something green to wear on the big day you’ll love these ideas
