This is the perfect craft for March!
This St.Patrick’s Day craft for preschoolers is so easy, so simple, and oh so fun for preschoolers and toddlers. I love finding fun crafts for kids that are actually helping their little bodies develop. This craft is fantastic for helping the little ones develop their fine motor skills. It requires a lot of tearing and cutting, which will strengthen those little finger muscles….all while having a little fun!

First, gather up all of your random green paper around the house. Most of ours came from the scrap pile I keep from other paper projects. I printed out a shamrock by finding a clip art shamrock on Microsoft Word. (yes, I am so fancy 🙂 )
Now let your sweet little get to work. Encourage them to rip the papers into small pieces. My son got a little tired of ripping and decided to get his scissors out and cut pieces. Do whichever works for you and your littles.
Once you have a nice pile of green shredded paper have your child glue the pieces onto the shamrock. We decided to turn this into a group effort, I glued and he stuck the papers on. It was fun to spend some time together crafting and discussing St.Patrick’s Day.
This was such a fun activity. I love doing things these simple craft projects, especially when I already have all the supplies on hand. How are you prepping for St.Patrick’s day with your kids?
