Kids St Patrick Craft
Priscilla is all about threading beads and making necklaces lately. So I thought I’d put a St. Patrick’s Day spin on the fine motor skill activity by inviting the kids to make St Patrick Craft Crowns. Here’s what we did…
St Patrick Craft Crown
- pipe cleaners
- various green plastic beads (Our pony beads were graciously supplied by CraftProjectIdeas.com.)
- green and yellow straws cut into “beads”
- foam shamrocks
- standard hole punch
1. Use the hole punch to make two holes in each foam shamrock so that they can be threaded onto the pipe cleaners.
2. Cut down the straws into short pieces to create straw beads.
3. Set out the various beads, straw beads, and shamrocks and allow the kids to start threading them onto the pipe cleaners.
4. Once they have one pipe cleaner full of “beads,” attach another pipe cleaner to one end by twisting the two pipe cleaners together. Let the kids add beads to the new attached pipe cleaner.
5. Once the entire pipe cleaner is full, bring both ends together and twist to make a circle “crown.”
6. Use colorful pipe cleaners to add a rainbow to the crown if you’d like.
The kids had so much fun making these crowns and just loved how they turned out. We’ll definitely be wearing them on St. Patrick’s Day!
