Easter and St. Paddy’s Day Crafts for Kids

Well, it’s pretty odd to be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and Easter in the same week. Will the Easter Bunny bring a pot of gold instead of eggs this year? I hope so!

We’ve been getting into the holiday spirit with some crafts. Here’s a couple things we made this week.

This first is an Easter Bunny craft idea that my SIL over at A Cup of Joy found while she was Ultimate Blog Party hopping. It was posted at The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.

This second craft is a Leprechaun hat that we made. My very own invention. I know. I know. It’s hard to believe I came up with this all on my own. Ha!

My son did wear it around the house for a little while, but he refused to be photographed with it. I guess that’s not how he rolls.

To make the hat we just cut out a shape like this:

I drew ours freehand. I didn’t think to make a pattern like this on the computer first. Then we added an extra strip of paper to the band to make it fit around my son’s head. We decorated it with a hat band, buckle and a four leaf clover. We also glued an extra scrap of paper to the back of the hat to reinforce it and help it stand up.
