Look no further for a darling keepsake St. Patrick’s Day craft than our Thumbprint Pot of Gold Craft. There’s gold thumbprints, there’s rainbows, and it’s a lovely craft for kids to make for St. Patrick’s Day.

Make this Thumbprint St. Patrick’s Day Craft
To make our Thumbprint Pot of Gold Craft you will need cardstock in black and your base color. We chose blue and purple, but green or even orange would be nice, too, and great St. Patrick’s Day colors.
The remainder of the supplies include yellow paint, markers in the rainbow of colors, a glue stick, and scissors.
Thumbprint Pot of Gold Craft Supplies Needed
- Cardstock – black, blue, purple, etc.
- Yellow acrylic paint
- Markers – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
- Glue stick
St. Patrick’s Day Thumbprint Craft Step by Step Instructions
Begin by choosing your base color. We chose blues and purple. Green or orange would be nice, too.
Cut the base sheet of cardstock in half.
Now, cut a pot shape from the black cardstock. To do this, simply cut a circle and trim a larger flat top and smaller flat bottom.
Glue the pot in place on the card.
Then, pour some yellow paint in a seperate surface. We like to either use our paint palette or a paper plate.
Dip a thumb in the yellow paint.
And begin making gold coins overflowing from the pot.
Finally, use markers to draw a simple rainbow coming from the pot of gold coins.
Such a fun and sweet St. Patrick’s Day craft. We hope you love making your pot of gold as much as we did!
