Valentine's Day is over and now St. Patrick's Day is coming up fast. We are already thinking ahead to crafts all month long. With little kids at home still, we find that the best way to entertain is to give them lots of arts and crafts projects. My youngest boy loves a great arts and crafts project, and since he is the last baby we love to make little projects with him to enjoy the last of the fun activities with kids.
This month I am collecting ideas for St. Patrick's Day. My little man loves rainbows, so this is the perfect time to let him go rainbow crazy. With all of the rain, we have been having it is also the perfect time to discuss rainbows and work with them.
This fun project is from The Kindergarten Connection. The Kindergarten Connection has tons of neat learning activities for early childhood, so be sure to check them out! You can find a full tutorial for this project on their website. Rainsticks are so much fun to play with. They create lovely sounds and allow the child to interact with sound, touch, and movement all in one fun craft. This St. Patrick's Day-themed rainstick makes the whole project extra fun.
Be sure to follow the instructions well and be prepared for a bit of a mess. Trust us, it is worth all of the mess.
