Shamrock Man! St. Patrick's Day Craft for Kids




originally published 3-15-12
Here's a fun and fabulous St. Patrick's Day craft you can whip up faster than a Leprechaun can count his doubloons!

What you need:

Here's what you do!:
  1. Using the green paper, draw and cut out a shamrock shape. (I had an shamrock shape that I traced, but you could just draw one. It's kind of like drawing a heart shape for each leaf.)
  2. Cut out strips of the white paper: 2 long, and 2 short.
  3. Cut out 4 circles from the green paper.
  4. Have the child fold the strips of paper accordion style. 
  5. Glue or tape them onto the shamrock.
  6. Glue or tape the green circles onto the ends of the strips for hands & feet.
  7. Draw a face.
I made the one shown above. I took this craft to a fun little St. Patrick's Day party my friend threw for our wee little ones. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
