St Patty’s Day: Shamrock Crafts

It’s March and I have the spring bug BIG TIME!!!  Spring also means St. Patrick’s Day is almost here:)  I dreaded St. Patrick’s Day as a kid….I am soooo not into pinching!!!! You are probably thinking “Then just wear green!”, right?  Well I did…sometimes subtly and sometimes overtly…it never seemed to matter.  There was this one boy who ALWAYS pinched me anyway.  It wasn’t until much later in life that I realized it was because he liked me.  In elementary school, however, it was annoying and he pinched HARD.  Now, as an adult, I love St. Patrick’s Day because it is ripe with Crafting possibilities.  (Not to mention the fact that I love dressing my babies up for any holiday and they both look fantastic in green!!!  It is also a great excuse for my husband to wear his lucky charms breakfast cereal t-shirt without getting greif about it from me.)  There are so many super fun things to make and so many of them are very kid friendly.

My 2 year old has had a blast taking green hearts and decorating them with glitter to make shamrock cards for all the people she loves.  These are super fun and easy.  Just cut out 4 heart from green card stock, decorate with glitter glue or scrapbooking glitter, glue to the front of a card or make a folding cards out of card stock and and using a sharpy write something clever like “I’m lucky to have you” and you have an instant card.  Simple and sweet.

 

I compiled a Pinterest Board of awesome Shamrock crafts. Here are some other examples of fun things to do with Shamrock…

I especially love the mixture of shamrocks and horse shoes in some of these crafts.  The horseshoes are an extra little punch to the “lucky charm” theme.  so many possibilities.
