4 St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Your Child to Send His or Her Birth Family

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner!

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and it presents a great opportunity to create fun crafts to send to your kids’ birth parents! Maybe one of these four crafts will be a great fit for your family! Don’t have contact with your child’s birth family right now? Perhaps you could save your child’s artwork for the possibility of future contact, or send it to another special person in your child’s life.

Leprechaun Paper Plate Mask
1. Leprechaun Paper Plate Mask

I love this St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Paper Plate Mask by ABC Creative Learning! I suggest having your child take a picture in the mask and sending the photo and mask to his or her birth parent. Maybe the birth parent can send a photo of them wearing the mask back!

Rainbow Hand Craft

If your child wants to get hands-on, give 123 Homeschool 4 Me’s St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Hand Craft a try! I love crafts that capture my child’s size in time. This is an easy craft to make with young children, since they need only stay still long enough for you to trace their hand.

Beaded Shamrocks
3. Beaded Shamrocks

Beads are popular with Pre-K/Elementary school kids if the crafts I do with my sons’ classes are any indication. These Beaded Shamrocks by Fun-A-Day are sure to be a hit. They’re a no-mess way for kids to express some creativity while creating a fun keepsake.

Rainbow Skittles Treat Bags

Lastly, who doesn’t love treats? These Rainbow Skittles Treat Bags from Cincy Shopper are a sweet way to say, “I love you and you’re on my mind!”
