Handmade Four-Leaf Clovers: Art Activity for Kids

Age: Preschool and kindergarten

Time: An hour or more

Type of activity: Arts and crafts activities for kids

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day by making your own lucky shamrocks.

 

Materials needed:
· Pencil
· Scissors
· Glue
· Green construction paper (Four sheets per shamrock)

What to do:

Step One: Have your child place her hand flat on a sheet of construction paper.

Step Two: Trace her hand using the pencil.

Step Three: Repeat this three more times, so that you have four hand patterns.

Step Four: Help your child cut out each of her hand patterns.

Step Five: Cut out a rectangle from the construction paper for your shamrock's stem. Help your child write her name or a short message on the stem.

Step Six: Arrange the handprints so they meet in the center. Space them out so that they look like leaves.

Step Seven: Once you have the "shamrock leaves" in place, glue them together.

Step Eight: Let the glue dry.

Step Nine: Now, glue the stem to the bottom of your shamrock leaves.

Step Ten: Now you can make a wish on your four-leaf-clover!
