Here is a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft idea your little one would love!
What you will need:
- washable paint
- shamrock stencil (you can also trace and cut one out)
- large marshmallows (alternatively, your child can use fingers for finger paint or dot markers)
- glitter (optional)
- clover puncher (optional).
HOW: secure shamrock stencil to your card (white cardstock) with a tape. Offer your child a marshmallow to use as a stamp dipped in green and yellow paint and invite to “decorate” the card by stamping the entire white part of the card. Once all the white area of the card is filled with marshmallow stamps, sprinkle some glitter and let dry. Thereafter, remove your stencil to reveal a beautiful shamrock silhouette. Your child can write a message inside the card or draw a picture.

P.S. Always supervise your children while they are crafting and creating, Xoxo
