Shamrocks and Rainbows

So apparently I'm trying to skip an entire week, since St. Patrick's day isn't until next week. Haha. Oh well, we still have some activities to do then.

Paper Plate Shamrock

materials: paper plate, green paint

activity: Cut the paper plate to look like a shamrock as shown in the photo. You can use one of the cut out pieces to form a stem. Have your child paint it green. We used this cool paint dabby thing that I got at Michael's recently. They came in a 4 pack for $9.99. Very fun.


materials: rainbow cut out of white paper, rainbow color of crayons or markers, cotton balls (optional)

activity: Have your child color their rainbow with all the rainbow colors. For older children, try to encourage them to make the arc of the rainbow. On the clouds you can add cotton balls if desired.


materials: shamorck cut out of white paper, green crayons and markes, green glitter (optional)

activity: Have your child color their shamrock green. Use glitter around the edge to decorate, if desired. Give to a special friend for luck!
