Pot of Gold Craft for St. Patrick’s Day

Pot of Gold - Rainbow Twirler Craft for St. Patrick's Day from Standard Deviants Accelerate

Alright, here is a fun craft that is great for the coming of spring as well as St. Patrick’s Day! With a colorful rainbow, a fun twisty twirly motion, and a pot of gold at the end!

Pot of Gold Craft for St. Patrick’s Day


  • Plain white paper plate
  • Paint in a rainbow of colors (you could also use markers or crayons)
  • Black and yellow construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • String or yarn


  1. Start by having your child paint (or crayon, or marker) rainbow stripes across the front of the paper plate.
  2. If using paint let it dry. (A hairdryer or fan are great ways to speed up the drying process.)
  3. Flip over and repeat step one on the back of the paper plate.
  4. Once both sides are colored and dry, take scissors and starting at the outside edge of the plate, cut spirals.
  5. Cut out a black pot of gold and glue it to the end of the spiraled plate. Glue some yellow circles on to the front of the black pot for the gold.
  6. Poke a hole in the top of the spiral (the opposite end of the pot of gold) and insert a string for hanging!
