St. Patrick’s Day Upcyled Shamrock Collage Art for Kids

shamrock-activity

Kids can create cute St. Patrick Day crafts with recycled paper and paint! If you’re looking for a fun-filled family holiday art activity, start with a whole-house paper scavenger hunt. Reuse child-friendly newspapers, magazines, worksheets or even old paper art projects. Gather the paper and get ready to upcycle it into a green shamrock-themed mini masterpiece.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Recycled paper–Choose child, friendly types of paper/pictures. Look for options that have light colors or large solid areas.
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard–Upycle an old cereal, cracker, moving, electronics or other box.
  • A marker
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Green paint–Choose a few different shades or mix white and green paint to create new hues.

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Draw a shamrock shape onto the cardboard with the marker.
  2. Cut out the shamrock. You may need to help your child with this step–especially if the board is thick.
  3. Tear or cut apart the paper into different shapes and sizes.
  4. Glue the paper onto the shamrock. Overlap the edges and layer the paper to create a collage.
  5. Wait for the glue to dry.
  6. Paint the shamrock green. Your child can choose to use one solid color or several different hues. If they use multiple shades of green, they may also choose to add polka dots, stripes or another design.

Optional: Let the paint dry and turn the shamrock over. Repeat the steps. After the paint dries, punch a hole at the top of the shamrock, thread a piece of yarn through the hole, tie the ends and hang up the artwork for the whole family to see!
