I’ve seen many different versions of St. Patrick’s Day wreaths online which gave me the idea to create a simple paper strip wreath that was so easy my toddler could make it. In a matter of about 5 minutes, I had this craft set up. I cut some green and white paper strips and a length of string. Then I glued the strips into circles. (If your child is old enough, he/she could cut and glue the strips.)
Next, your child can put a sticker on some or all of the paper loops for added decoration. (For some reason Pooky really only wanted to put the stickers on the green strips. I guess her artistic side is coming out already.)
Next, have your child “thread” the string through each paper loop. Once they are all on the string, tie a knot. I also tied on a shamrock charm to hang down into the center of the wreath (optional). At this point, the paper wreath might look a little misshapen, but that’s okay. Find a place to hang it and then spread out the paper strips to give it more of a defined shape.
And there you have a super easy St. Patrick’s Day Paper Wreath that’s simple enough for toddlers and other young kids to make. You can see some other toddler activities we’ve done with this theme here.
