St. Patty's day arts, crafts and recipes- Torn Paper Shamrock

Torn Paper Shamrock
This is a super simple paper project for younger children that actually looks like something when they are done. You can adapt the idea to make a greeting card or decoration.

What You'll Need:
Green construction paper
Large sheet of contrasting paper
What to Do:

1. Tear green construction paper into small pieces. Half inch squares work pretty well, but you can go a little bigger if you're working with a very young child.

2. Draw a large shamrock shape in the middle of the sheet of contrasting paper.

3. Spread glue around the inside of the design. Try to cover the entire surface of the shamrock so that covering it will be easier.

4. Put the torn green paper on the glue to create the shamrock design. Let the glue dry completely.

Drizzle a little glue on top of the torn paper and then sprinkle with glitter.

Use this idea to create a greeting card for parents or grandparents.

Use the torn paper idea to create a pot of gold, leprechaun, or other St. Patrick's Day design.
