Easy Shamrock Paper Craft for Kids
I’m all about quick and simple paper crafts. They require little prep time and work for kids of all ages. With St Patrick’s Day almost here, I knew I had to make something with a shamrock. This craft is quick to set up, turns out bright and beautiful and you only need a few materials.
- Card stock or construction paper in different colors
- Black card stock or construction paper
- Glue stick or school glue
- Shamrock template (download below)
How to Make an Easy Shamrock Craft
Start by downloading the shamrock template below. Click on the image for your FREE printable.
For personal use only.
Provide different card stock or construction paper in different colors and let your child rip a large piece of each. Ripping paper is excellent for fine motor development in younger kids and they have so much fun it too!
Glue each piece to a plain white card stock. Make sure to cover the entire white paper and none of it peeks through. Then, cut out the shamrock template and trace onto black card stock. Glue the shamrock on top of the colorful papers and you’re done!
The contrast of the black shamrock on colorful background is so beautiful! I personally love lots of bright colors but you can make the background any colors you like. You can also use patterned paper for a cool collage effect.
I hope you love this craft as much as I do and try it with your kids. If you do, share it on social media and tag me so I can see it! It makes me so happy seeing people recreating my crafts and ideas with their families. Find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
