St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Crafts for Kids
St. Patrick’s Day is on its way! It’s time to make St. Patrick’s Day handprint crafts. Children love to mess with paint so why not keep them engaged with making handprint crafts for their St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The 11 handprint crafts shown in this post (1 above, 10 below) are simple to make and fun for kids of all ages.
St. Patrick’s Day handprint crafts can include shamrocks, clovers, leprechauns, pots o’ gold, and rainbows. Have the children design their own St. Patrick’s Day pictures using their handprints, construction paper, paints, paper plates, markers, gold coins, glitter, scissors and glue.
Take time to look around. I have many posts with handprint crafts for children to make for themselves, or as presents for mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, siblings, teachers, or any one who is important in their life. Put their St. Patrick’s Day handprint crafts together with poems for keepsake handprint gifts.
St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Crafts Activity Plans
As you can see from each of the pictures below, you won’t need directions to make these simple St. Patrick’s Day handprint crafts. But, to make this a fun, challenging activity touching on analytic and planning skills, I’ve included suggestions for three creative lesson plans. They can be followed as a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity in the classroom or at home.
Activity Plan #1:
- study the St. Patrick’s Day handprint crafts, choose one to make

- follow the steps
- compare completed handprint craft to original
- make changes to the orders, if needed
Activity Plan #2:
- follow the steps above, then swap with another person to follow
- compare and discuss the steps
- edit as needed
Activity Plan #3:
- simply study the picture
- without following steps, create the same basic picture
- make creative changes as desired
