It’s already February and that means that St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. Whether or not you’re Irish, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is a fun way to brighten up a dreary March day, learn about St. Patrick himself, and have a bit of fun with these 15 shamrock crafts for kids.
Finding time for arts and crafts can challenge working homeschool moms. After all, you’re juggling Zoom meetings and kids, meal planning, homemaking, and homeschool as well.
If you’re anything like me, it’s all too easy to focus on the academic homeschooling curriculum goals and miss out on fun craft activities. Yet finding ways to include simple, fast arts and crafts in your day will help you and your children destress.
Make Art Easy
When I started including regular art time in our homeschool routine, I found the budding homeschool behavior problems that were emerging with my two youngest children quickly disappeared. There’s just something about creating together that calms us all down!
I keep our art cupboard well-stocked with paper, markers, glue sticks, scissors, stickers, and glitter. Can’t forget that glitter. We also include coloring sheets, yarn, pompoms, and pipe cleaners. And all the kids know to gather up our toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls too. They make excellent animal crafts!
As a working homeschool mom running a busy content creation company and several websites, I’m always busy. And I need to be intentional about having fun. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for simple crafts to complete in under 30 minutes. And these 15 shamrock crafts for kids fit the bill.
Involve your kids in some fun and family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day celebrating by making crafts.
