Inside: Looking for fun toddler St. Patrick’s Day activities? Here are 20 easy, hands-on ideas that are perfect for younger children!
I thought it would be easy to find toddler St. Patrick’s Day activities, but it wasn’t. Have you noticed that many ideas that are described as “for toddlers” really aren’t? Yep, I found this out. And so I took extra time to search for what I felt would work well with toddlers and put them in a collection for you.
What I love about each of these toddler St. Patrick’s Day activities is that there aren’t a lot of instructions. You know how much I love simple art for this age group. Holidays are included. But yes, we do get a bit more crafty during these holidays, I admit.
I shared what toddlers love most about each of these so you could see the variety.
