My son’s favorite color seems to be green lately, and it used to be yellow when he was a younger toddler. So the holiday of St. Patrick’s day is quite perfect, with the green and gold theme, for us to do a fun craft together.
Coffee Filter Shamrock St. Patrick’s Day Activity
Since we had such a fun and easy time making Valentine’s day craft using coffee filters, I decided we’d do something similar for our St. Patty’s day craft. My son loves to glue, and so I figured glitter glue would really get him excited. I was right!
I free-handed cut some four-leaf clovers out of coffee filters. In retrospect, I should have drawn them first. They look a bit more like butterflies than clovers, but we’ll go with it. I never claimed to be an artist.
Then I laid the shamrocks down and let him pour glitter glue of green and yellow colors. Then we folded and squished the coffee filters around to create glittery shamrock art. For fun, I outlined them in green marker to help define the shape a bit.
And now, a roundup!
