St Patrick’s Day Paper Craft for Kids

St Patricks Day Paper Craft

With St Patrick’s Day just around the corner it’s time to create a rainbow themed St Patricks Day paper craft with the littles! This rainbow pot of gold craft is totally fun and easy to make.

I was a parent helper in Isaiah’s class the other day so I prepared this craft for the kids and helped them to put it all together.  Bless all of our wonderful teachers ~ especially the ones that teach my boys Kindergarten!  We were inspired by this pot of gold at the end of the rainbow craft.

St Patrick’s Day Craft for Kids

How to make a rainbow pot of gold:


  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Gold sparkles


1. Gather supplies (black and coloured construction paper, tape, glue, scissors), trace a pot shape onto black paper and circles onto yellow paper, cut rainbow colours into strips.

2. Have children cut out the pot shape and yellow circles.

3. Link the coloured strips of paper together using tape.  Talk about how the colours of the rainbow go together and encourage kids to follow a ROYGBIV pattern

4. Glue yellow circles to the pot and cover with gold glitter if desired.

5. Attach the rainbow links to the pot using a black strip of paper for the handle and tape.

The children really enjoyed making these and it was fun to have a 3D craft that the kids could hang from various places.
