I know how much my son loves getting messy so thought we would break out the paints for St Patrick (in honour of our Irish heritage).
We cut an ordinary green pepper in half and dipped it in some green paint. Sounds simple but somehow we ended up breaking the plate – oops! Then the toddler was let loose, creating pretty shamrocks over sheet of paper.
Four-leafed clover anyone? Our version of the shamrock, symbol of Ireland and associated with St Patrick.
