Have some fun with these crafty days in March! The first thing that comes to mind for crafts in March is the super fun, Saint Patricks Day but there are also lots of other great days that you can make crafts to celebrate! These days aren’t specifically about crafts rather the important and fun celebrated days of March that can be used for crafting inspiration. We love days that are dedicated to special holidays and events that we can make crafts and fun activities for! Some of the other days that we are really looking forward to include, World Book Day, Learn About Butterflies Day and Quilting Day.
Making crafts with children gives the opportunity to talk about the special day, and adults to reflect on why the day is important. Or maybe it is just a day for celebrating something fun either way we don’t really need much of an excuse to have some crafty fun!
