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.
· 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!
