St. Patrick's Craft Day

I've been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I absolutely love creating projects for myself and my kids. This is another reason why Pinterest has become such a phenomenon for me. I love the ideas I see and can't wait to try them out. I had seen a couple different St. Patrick's Day projects for kids that I wanted to make. I thought I'd try something different though, I hosted a big craft day at my house for my mom friends and their kids. All in all, we had 15 kids and 7 moms making 3 different craft projects! When the crafting was all done, I had a rainbow of fruit and snacks for the kids to eat.

The set up wasn't bad at all. I purchased all the supplies and did a demo project of each of the three crafts with my oldest daughter. This way each table could see a finished project and I wouldn't have to "lead" the craft. I set up multiple tables and the supplies needed for that craft at the table. I don't have a huge house, but it worked out well having the craft stations. In fact, I'll attempt to do this again come summer time. I'm thinking giant bubbles and homemade sidewalk chalk or paint. We'll see. Anyway, here are the pictures from our craft day. Hope you enjoy them and take some ideas for your own craft day or projects next  year!!
