Now that I have my Valentine’s Day crafts all planned out, it is time to turn my attention to St. Patrick’s Day. I like to plan these activities ahead of time because I homeschool my oldest daughter. I enjoy adding a few crafts into her lesson plans, and she enjoys the break from her book work.
The first craft I plan to make with my daughter is a pot of gold. This craft reuses an old flower pot and makes for a perfect gift for a parent, teacher, or friend.
Follow these steps to make your pot of gold:
Spray paint an old small flower pot black. It is best if you do this outside. Wait for the paint to dry before continuing.
Place a little Easter grass at the bottom of the flower pot to take up some of the room. Try to fill it at least half way.
Fill the rest of the flower pot with chocolate gold coins. You can get these at any department store, and even my local Dollar Store carries them.
Cut out a few small shamrocks from a sheet of green construction paper. Glue these shamrocks around pot of gold as decorations.
- In addition to, or instead of, color a few rainbows and glue them to the flower pot for decoration.
- Paint the name of the individual you plan to give the pot of gold to on the front of the flower pot. You can use gold paint, or rainbow colors.
