Looking for a St. Patrick's Day craft idea for kids? Try these simple St. Patrick's Day perler bead projects!

Our entire family recently got into perler bead crafts over the Christmas break. While most of our creations have been letters (shocking when you have a kid with hyperlexia, right?), Pokemon characters, and Super Mario characters. We've been branching out though to create some fun holiday and seasonal themed ideas lately. These St. Patrick's Day perler bead designs are easy to make and would be great to turn into magnets or even a pin to wear on St. Patrick's Day.

These patterns are easy to follow and make, but if you are unfamiliar with perler bead crafting, you'll discover that making these is a great fine motor workout! Even for adults! There's also lots of counting. visual discrimination, and color matching involved, so even if it doesn't seem like it, there's lots of learning hidden within these crafts.

Plus, there's a cute photo of K trying to wear the leprechaun hat over on CBC Parents.
