Looking for a super easy Saint Patrick’s Day craft to do with the kiddos in your life? Look no further. A lucky little four-leaf clover for your sweet kiddo.
Sometimes I just need something to fill a gap. A quick activity to keep Maddy busy for the 10 minutes before lunch. Of a little craft to redirect her and change the mood of the day. Sometimes all it takes is a little crafty activity and her whole mood can improve. Mommy’s too.
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner so I pulled out a few supplies and let her go to town on the very quick and easy craft. She loved getting a little bit messy and I loved filling a bit of time so she would stop asking for lunch at 10:15 in the morning. I would suggest using washable paint and a paint shirt or smock.
Supplies needed to make a hand print four-leaf clover:
paper plate or paint tray that fits your child’s hand
How to make a hand print four leaf clover
Step 1: Pour some paint onto the plate.
Step 2: Have your child dip their hands into the paint and rub them around to coat their palms and finger.
Step 3: Stamp the paint covered hands onto the paper with the palms toward the center and fingers facing outward. Turn the page a quarter of a turn for each hand print and alternate between left and right hand to make a the four leaves of the clover. They will probably need to dip their hands into the paint to re-coat them after the first set of hand prints.
Step 4: Using one or two paint covered finger tips paint a stem starting at the center of the clover between two of the hand prints.
Step 5: Once the paint is dry use the marker to draw an outline of the clover around the hand prints and stem.
Simple, cute and fun. Step 6 for Maddy was to rub the green paint all over her hands like it was lotion, but I figured you might want to skip that step. Happy hand printing everyone!
