Pot of Gold with Rainbow for St. Patrick’s Day

Pot of Gold

Pot of Gold

This easy craft — a “pot of gold” complete with rainbow handle — is perfect for preschool or daycare. And kids can bring theirs home (filled with St. Patrick’s Day treats or cards, perhaps) and hang it on a door handle. All you need is paper plates, adhesive and crayons, markers, or paint.

What You Need: 2 standard paper plates; scissors; crayons, markers or paints; tape or stapler.

How to Make It: First, an adult will need to help little kids cut out part of each plate to create a handle shape. Then, children color a rainbow pattern (great way to practice colors!) on the handle. The rest of the paper plate is colored black, serving as the leprechaun’s pot of gold. Finally, join the two plates together using Scotch tape or staples. Kids could also add shamrock stickers if they’d like.
