We’ve been having so much fun playing with St. Patrick’s Day rainbows and shamrocks! Holidays are just fun when you have a 2 and 3 year old. Today I have two quicky tips and tricks for your St. Patrick’s Day season. These aren’t mind blowing or overly literate activities, but they are fun!
Tip 1: Repurpose your Valentine’s Day stickers into Shamrocks
Do you have any leftover heart stickers from Valentine’s Day? Why not make them into shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day?
I took this sheet of leftover Valentine hearts and made colorful clover cards. We used these cards for sorting and patterning.
Tip 2: Make Shamrock Prints with Peppers
You know the old rhyme, “Peter Piper printed a peck of shamrock peppers…” No. No. That’s not right… Anyway, apparently these are not anything new. After I first saw them on Pinterest– linked to this article on St. Patrick’s Day crafts— I have seen them EVERYWHERE. But let me be honest, they were new to me!
I just cut off the bottom of a pepper and they stamped in green paint. It’s a pretty un-messy way to paint… until Tyson decided to eat the pepper!
Tyson is 2 and Logan is 3– but if you meet him, he will quickly tell you, “I’m almost 4”. This was an activity they both enjoyed.
