St. Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold Art for Preschoolers
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with an easy art activity for your preschooler. Whether you’re crafting at home or need a special activity for a pre-k holiday party, these pot of gold ideas are perfect for kiddos ages three through five.
Paper Pot of Gold Collage
Cut out a black circle (to use as a pot) and plenty of smaller yellow circles (to use as gold). Give your child a piece of green card stock or poster board, the shapes and a glue stick. Now they’re ready to collage. It’s that easy! Don’t worry if your preschooler doesn’t get all the gold in the pot. The idea behind this art activity is for the child to explore collage while building fine motor skills.
Finger Print Pot of Gold
Pour pools of black and yellow tempera paint onto two separate paper plates. Give your child a piece of thick white card stock paper. Your child can dip their fingers into the paint, printing a pot and gold.
St. Patrick’s Day Clay Play
Use soft modeling clay to help your child build a teeny tiny cauldron. Pull apart yellow clay, rolling each piece into a gold coin. Add the gold to the pot to complete the holiday sculpture. Your child can sprinkle gold glitter on top for a metallic effect.
