It’s been a while since we made any sun catchers to brighten the room, but with St Patrick’s Day coming up next month, it seemed the perfect time. We have Irish ancestry but I admit we don’t go all out to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
Shamrock sun catcher craft
The shamrock is symbol of Christianity in Ireland and associated with St Patrick. Our paper plate shamrock sun catcher is a simple craft activity for children.
I traced a shamrock onto a paper plate and cut it out.
My 4 year old cut a sheet of green cellophane into small pieces.
I covered one side of the paper plate with contact paper, then she added the green cellophane.
When she had finished I covered the back with more contact paper to seal the sun catcher. She was happy with her simple shamrock sun catcher craft and so was I!
Today I’m taking part in the St Patricks Day Kids Activities Blog Hop with lots of other crafty bloggers.
