Give each child a canvas bag and a sharpie. I used a sharpie to quickly draw a pot of gold with a rainbow coming down from the top of the bag. You can choose to do this for your kids or let them do it themselves. My kids always say they can’t draw something but it always turns out really cute.
Again with my mantra. Let your kids try. They could always try again or just have them color it and I’m sure it will look good.
Start with the pot then draw on some half circle coins and lines down for the rainbow.
Let your kids fill in their pot of gold with whatever fabric colors they like. The rainbow doesn’t have to be exactly like a rainbow.
Hide some chocolate gold coins around the house and let them collect some St Patrick’s Day loot before the Leprechauns do.
