If you've hung around here long enough, you know our love for St. Patrick's Day. We take it very seriously with our Leprechaun Tradition and our Corned Beef and Cabbage is one for the books. So it shouldn't be a surprise that we are getting ready in advance with these great St. Patrick's Day Crafts for Kids.
St. Patrick's Day Crafts for Kids
We do a ton of baking around our house no matter what season it is, but we love making Fun St. Patrick's Day Desserts. I decided that this year was the perfect time to get Avery in the kitchen with me. She is two and half and is my whirlwind of a sidekick.
I never resist a chance to use her little handprints to help us create the perfect craft. Unlike my oldest, Avery loves having her hands get dirty so when I told her we were going to create a shamrock with her handprints, she was thrilled. You'll need:
I couldn't just stop there though. We needed to add a little glitter to our aprons. I'm of the firm belief that my girls need to be able to express themselves without worrying about the mess they are making. They love glitter and I'm certainly not going to hold back from letting them express themselves.
Sometimes letting them express themselves results in a mess, which is fine by me. Swiffer is teaming up with actress Sarah Michelle Gellar to say, "Yes to the Mess" and we couldn't be more thrilled. We know that thanks to Swiffer we're able to clean up a mess like this in minutes.
It's so easy that even Avery can do it! The Swiffer Wet-Jet is an all-in-one system that cleans floors thoroughly using cleaning solutions specially formulated to break up and dissolve tough messes. It took up our fabric paint and glitter in no time at all.
It was so easy that she even came up with her own song about cleaning all by herself!
Not only does the wet-jet clean up tough messes like paint, but it's also quick to clean up sugar and chocolate from our latest rainbow snack that we made for a playdate. These are also super easy to make. You'll need:
Simply cut the straws in half and attach them to the applesauce cup with white chocolate. Place the mini marshmallows around by dipping them into the white chocolate as well to hold to the cup. That's it! There's a bit of a sugary mess, but the rainbow tastes so good that it's totally worth it! Plus, Swiffer is there to help with the mess!
We couldn't just keep our love of Swiffer to ourselves so we decided to share and let another family say "Yes to the Mess!"
