  4. Paper Plate & Craft Stick Rainbow Kids Craft from Kid Things - This rainbow craft is minimalistic art for kids.  The supplies and the shapes are basic, but the result resembles a rainbow you might see in a modern day children's book.

  7. Sweet Treats St. Patrick's Day Craft from Embracing Creativity - Did you know rainbow colored licorice candy existed?  (I didn't and I'm very excited about the possibility of buying some.)  This adorable little craft would make perfect party favors.  Just add a little cellophane and ribbon, and you're all set!
  8. Rainbow Preschool Craft from The Nerd's Wife - This rainbow paper cut-and-paste craft is perfect for preschoolers and kindergartners.  Granted, there is no pot of gold, but you can certainly add one of your own with a little black and yellow construction paper.
  9. Pot of Gold at the End of a Rainbow Teacher's Gift from A Sparkle of Genius - The best gifts are handmade ones and this one is fun, thoughtful, and practical.  Complete with a free printable gift tag, this little project would make a wonderful teacher's gift around the St. Patrick's Day holiday.
