Handprint crafts are always fun to do and usually don’t get recycled even by me. (I rarely keep crafts.) For St.Patrick’s Day, make this simple handprint shamrock craft with all ages of kids. Toddlers can just do the painting, while school-age kids are perfectly able to do it with little to no help. With little ones, you will be doing a lot of cutting. It’s tricky to cut out hands even when you are full grown, but for something that doesn’t get recycled it’s well worth it.
- Gather your materials. You will need some white paper, a sheet of orange construction paper, a marker, some green paint, a paint brush or roller, some gold glitter glue, scissors, and glue.
- Start by tracing your child’s hands 4 times.
- Time to paint!
- Add some gold glitter glue and then let dry.
- Cut out, I also cut out a stem from the extra around the hand prints. One of our hands didn’t survive, so our planned 4 leaf clover then turned into a shamrock.
- Add glue to the orange paper.
- Add the stem and hands and then, let dry.
