I wanted to do a craft with the kids for St. Patrick’s day so I started with Dani Rea and her friend Emelie. They are both 3 so I had to keep it simple concentrating on the girls knowledge of colors and their sensory skills for painting.
- Piece of blue paper to do the project on
- Red, yellow, green, blue and purple paint
- Bell pepper
- Glue stick
- Corn on the cob holders
- Small bowl
- Sharpie marker
- Bowl for paint
- Yellow, black and brown construction paper
I drew the pot of gold using the St. Patrick’s Craft Pot Template and tracing it almost to the top and then free-handed the top of the pot. Then cut it out.
Then I took the yellow piece of paper and printed out the St Patrick’s Day Coins Template on it and cut them out.
I drew lines on the light blue paper for the girls to be able to paint the rainbow. I took the brown paper and printed out the Cross Template and cut that out as well.
Now it was time to paint. I put a little dot of paint in each line so the girls would know where to paint which color. Then they started painting.
Then it was time to glue on the pot and the gold.
The next thing was to put the corn on the cob holders into the cut bell pepper and let them start stamping their shamrocks.Dani Rea asked me what are shamrocks and I told her they represent the trinity. Then she asked me where they come from which was perfect because that was the point to the lesson.
