Are you looking for a creative kids’ craft to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Check out this artsy activity that shines with a special lucky shamrock sparkle!

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard-Reuse the front or side of an old box instead of buying new board.
  • Green tempera paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Green and gold glitter
  • Scissors
  • A marker

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Draw an over-sized shamrock onto the cardboard. Make the shamrock as big as your child wants. If your child is struggling to create a shamrock shape, make a heart stencil or template from another piece of cardboard. Position the heart horizontally with the pointy end facing the center. Trace the heart. Move the heart to a vertical position and trace it again. Move the heart again to a horizontal position—facing the opposite direction as the first heart. Make sure the pointy end of the hearts touch. Draw a stem at the bottom to complete the shamrock shape.
  2. Cut the shamrock out. If the board is thick, you may need to do this step for your child.
  3. Paint the shamrock with green tempera. Let the shamrock dry completely.
  4. Paint the shamrock again with a wash of glue.
  5. Sprinkle green and gold glitter on top of the glue and shake off the excess.
