Shamrock Rainbow Craft for Kids

Sharing is caring!

You know what always reminds me of St. Patrick’s Day?

Rainbows and shamrocks.

Also, leprechauns, the color green, and pinches. (But, I hate the pinching part of these holiday, so I try to forget about that part.)

Anyway, back to the rainbows and shamrocks.

How to make your Shamrock Rainbow craft

For the first step, we painted rainbow stripes on our white paper.

My first grader painted hers in the correct color order, but my preschooler did hers in what ever way struck her fancy, including adding polka dots.

Have fun and get creative with this step.

I love the rainbow paper so much!

It would have been pretty to stop here, but we wanted to add more.

We took the green construction paper and cut it into quarters.

Then we folded the quarters in half and cut out hearts, three in total.

We also cut a stem from the extra paper.

After our watercolor paintings were dry, we glued our hearts down in the shape of a shamrock.

The process was truly simply, but the results were so pretty.

It makes me smile just to see them on our wall.
