My kids love doing seasonal crafts and activities, and this time of year we are gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day. I usually keep the store bought decorations to a minimum, but our home is often filled with kid-made decor. These St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Kids will give you plenty of options to add some festive touches to your home. Best of all, the activities will keep kids having fun and learning.

If you have done some St. Patrick’s Day Activities for kids and are looking for more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution. Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
