Saint Patrick's Day Craft for Kids - Make a Votive. Use green tissue paper to decorate a glass candle hold for St. Patrick's Day. #kids #saint-patricks-day

If you are looking for a Saint Patrick’s Day craft for kids that doesn’t involve rainbows or a leprechaun then you’ve come to the right place. Don’t get me wrong, we love us some rainbows, pots of gold and Lucky Charms, and we have done plenty of activities involving those things. Today’s Saint Patrick Day craft for kids does not. It’s a little more subdued and will be a great addition to your Saint Patrick’s Day decorating.

You will need:

  • Green tissue paper (we used 2 shades of green)
  • Glass votive holder
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Brush
  • Tea light or small candle
