Creative Crafts for St. Patrick’s Day


While the days of hitting up Faneuil Hall to drink ourselves into a green-beer-induced stupor may be long behind us, we can still get in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit with these adorable crafts to adorn our homes! And the best part? No hangover the next day!

Pot-o-Gold Slime

St. Patrick's Day - Boston Moms Blog

Channel your inner leprechaun and create this sparkly slime from MomDot. Unlike most slime recipes that call for white glue, this one uses clear sparkly glue to create a shimmery sensory experience. It’s guaranteed to keep your children (and quite possibly you as well!) entertained. 

Eraser-stamped T-shirt

St. Patrick's Day - Boston Moms Blog

This shamrock T-shirt by Cutesy Crafts is perfect for all skills levels (and can easily be applied to a different holiday by replacing the shamrock with a different pattern). While it calls for a pencil eraser to make the green dots, you can use any utensil with a flat end. Make one for all the kids, and your family will be totally ready to hit up the Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade in style!
