St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Garden Craft for Kids
Your creative kiddo can craft their own garden filled with shamrocks. This St. Patrick’s Day art activity is more than just a holiday project. Not only will your grade school-aged child create a cute St. Paddy’s Day display, they’ll also build math/geometry skills, fine motor abilities, creativity and more!
Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need
- White cards stock paper
- Green crayons or markers
- A heart-shaped template or large cookie cutter
- Clear-drying school glue
- Twigs or small sticks
- Green crepe paper
- A paintbrush
- Packing tape
How-To Art-Making Steps
- Create the shamrock’s leaves. Help your child to trace hearts onto the card stock paper. They will need three hearts for each shamrock. Your kiddo can draw and cut as many as they can craft!
- Cut out the hearts.
- Color both sides of each heart with a green crayon, marker or both.
- Position three hearts together with the points facing inwards. Your child should place one heart to each side and one pointing straight down.
- Glue the hearts together at the points. Wait for the glue to dry.
- Squeeze a dollop of glue onto a paper plate or recycled piece of cardboard.
- Paint the glue over the twig or stick.
- Wrap the green crepe paper around the glue and press it down firmly.
- After the glue dried, tape one shamrock to the top of the green twig stem.
- Repeat to make more shamrocks.
- Plant the shamrocks in your garden! But make sure to bring them inside when it rains.
