We love spending our weekends getting crafty with the kids.
Keeping them entertained for an hour or so, and getting to act like a kid ourselves for a little while, makes cleaning up the mess afterwards totally worth it.
And with St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching, we’ve put together a list of some great crafts that you and your little ones can get creative with.
From festive wreaths to gorgeously green hair accessories, these lovely ideas will keep you and yours busy this weekend.
