Two Holiday Craft Ideas for the Kids (Easter and St. Patrick’s Day)

St. Patrick’s Day: Felt Shamrock Craft

St. Patrick’s day is such a fun holiday, it’s a little bit cheeky and heavy on the eating and celebrating. But there is a darker side to St. Patty: as a child I lived in fear of getting pinched. Yes, I was the kid who worked up a lather that somehow, in spite of my mounting anxiety, I would forget to wear green on March 17th, inviting perfect strangers to pinch me to their hearts content.

Maybe I was a weird kid. Whether that’s the case or not, I can tell you one thing: I’ll be wearing my green this St. Patricks Day. And here is an easy and adorable way for you to get your green on as well: These simple felt shamrocks take just minutes to make, cost only pennies, and can adorn everything from hair clips to pins and more. Frankly, once you start making them, you might find it hard to stop.

How will you wear your green this St. Patrick’s Day? Or will you hole up in your house, hiding from those rogue pinchers?

Easter Wreath with Paper Flowers

The calendar is telling me that spring should be making an appearance any day now (not to mention that pesky groundhog), but y’all? It is COLD here. We’ve had a rainy past couple of days, and there is rain in the forecast again tomorrow. I am doggedly ignoring all of this and instead looking at this lovely Easter wreath, packed with charming paper flowers and so easy to make, it will warm your heart (if not your freezing hands).

The best part of this floral wreath? It’s inexpensive and, if stored properly, can be enjoyed for many spring seasons to come.wreath collage

So, what’s the weather like in your part of the world? Are you dreaming of spring decor while there’s frost on the ground?
