Can you believe it’s March 1st! Spring isn’t far behind and we can’t wait to spend more time outdoors as the weather warms up. Until then, we are excited to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick. Many families celebrate this cultural and religious celebration in a variety of different ways like attending church, going to a parade or crafting at home.
Check out a few of the crafts that we’re excited to try with the kiddos:
