It won’t be long until St.

Patrick’s Day is here, which means you probably want to come up with some fun things to do with your kids.

It’s only natural to want to celebrate the day with your little ones, but it can be hard to come up with ideas of what to do with them.

Luckily, I’ve done the research for you and will give you loads of fun ways to make the holiday special for your kids.

1. Make Cookies

What kid doesn’t love to eat cookies?

Any kid will have fun baking some treats they can eat and share with loved ones.

A basic batch of sugar cookies is easy to do and once baked, you can decorate them for St.

Patrick’s Day.

Use green frosting and white sprinkles or tint your cookie dough with green food coloring and cover them with white frosting.2

Use a shamrock cookie cutter to make your cookies even more festive.

2. Make a Leprechaun Trap

I did this with my kids last year and they absolutely loved it!

Start by cutting a trap door in a cardboard box.

Then have your kids decorate the trap with colored paper, cutouts, glitter and whatever other St.

Patrick’s Day décor catches your eye.

Then while your kids sleep, leave little bits of evidence that a leprechaun was there, but he got away.

Gold coins, glitter or shamrock beads are great options.

3. Stamp Paper

There are a couple of fun ways to make shamrock stamps to make fun wall hangings with your kids.

Hot glue three wine corks together, then dip them in green paint and stamp them on white paper.

Or cut a bell pepper in half from side to side.

The resulting shape is very similar to a shamrock and you can use it to stamp paper.2

This craft is really fun for toddlers and preschoolers.
