Super Simple Shamrock Craft

This Shamrock craft is perfect for even the littlest of people! I traced and cut out a shamrock shape onto green construction paper and then applied contact paper to the back of the paper, sticky side up.  Next, I shredded some dark green construction paper and let my daughter start sticking on the shredded pieces of paper, that's it....super simple!

My daughter would stick on the pieces and then take them off again.  She also enjoyed just running her fingers through the paper.  To let her explore shredded paper more I will do a shredded paper sensory bin sometime soon!

Tiffany insisted that the shamrock had to have a brown stem so I gave her a piece of brown sticky back foam for the stem of the shamrock.  We hung it up on our back patio door and it looks pretty with the outside light shining through it.

What crafts do you have planned for St. Patrick's day!?
