You’re going to love all these St. Patrick’s Day crafts for kids!
Kids love making crafts! After being a nanny for several years, I realized how true that is. It didn’t matter if it was something hard or simple. The fact that we were making a craft gave them all the excitement. 🙂 I loved watching them cut, paint, glue and that look of satisfaction on their face after they completed their project and knew it was something they had done. They were so proud of their craft. 🙂
