Shamrock Craft Ideas
In case you need some ideas for these shamrock templates, here are some great ones you can do with your kids.
1. Decorate the shamrock templates.
Print out shamrock templates (find below) for your kids to decorate. If they’re old enough to use scissors, let them cut out their own shamrock shape to fine-tune their motor skills. Bring out different colored markers and glitter for your kids to decorate their shamrocks with. Encourage them to be creative in doing this!
2. Stamp Shamrock.
For this craft, cut out a shamrock template for your kids to use and use masking tape to lightly stick it to the middle of another paper. Next, give them stamps that have to do with St. Patty’s day or leaves and nature and have them stamp around the template. Then remove the shamrock template by carefully peeling off the tape from the paper. This will leave an outline of the shamrock at the end and silly stamps all around it!
3. Fingerprint Shamrock.
Decorate a shamrock template with finger painting! This will be unique to your children and a cute little decoration. Fingerprint art always makes a great keepsake that you can treasure forever.
4. A Shamrock Scavenger Hunt.
Hide tiny templates of shamrocks in your yard. Have your kids go out and search in the grass for the hidden shamrocks. You can even give them a magnifying glass to use and a prize for finding the shamrocks. Great for getting your kids outside to explore and have fun!
