I was browsing Pinterest the other day and kept coming across some cute St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas for kids so I thought it would be fun to make something with Kora & Logan. We looked at a couple different ideas but didn’t have many of the supplies on hand (we need to make a run to the craft store!) so we took a look at what we did have and tried to figure out something creative.
Kora said she wanted to make St. Patrick’s Day cards for her teacher’s so we got out the glitter glue, markers, and stamp pad. We had fun spending a few minutes together in the evening working on festive fingerprint cards adorned with marker letters and glitter glue. We did thumbprint rainbows, shamrocks, and pots of gold. We also did glitter glue rainbows with more thumbprint shamrocks underneath.
Here’s a couple of our creations:
I think they turned out great and they were so fun to work on together. It was an evening well spent. I love sitting with the kids and seeing how creative they can be. They always surprise me with their imagination and the stories they can tell from their drawings and artwork. While I don’t consider myself artistic or crafty in anyway, they both love it so much I enjoy spending time with them and attempting arts & craft projects with them. It always makes me laugh when they say, “That’s great, Mommy! But what is it?”
This project was so fun, simple, and easy to clean up that I look forward to seeing what else we can come up with using colorful fingerprints. I’ve since created a Fingerprint Art Board on Pinterest and can’t wait to try some of these other ideas.
What about you? Have you ever done fingerprint crafts with the children in your life? What kind of St. Patrick’s Day crafts and activities do you like to do?
