A St. Patrick’s Day Craft Idea!

Are you looking for something fun to do with your little ones this week for St. Patrick's Day? You're in luck! I visited one of my favorite craft sites and found something fun to do! You can see the full craft here: http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/holiday-seasonal-crafts/st-patricks-day-crafts/green-stamp-673838/

The picture, idea, and instructions are all the property of Family Fun. I am only borrowing them to share with you. You should definitely check out their website for even more fun craft ideas to do with your kids!


Materials


Heart-shaped cookie cutter (2 1/2 inches wide and long)


Potato, cut in half


Paring knife


Green acrylic paint


Paintbrush


Instructions



  1. Press a heart-shaped cookie cutter (ours was 2 1/2 inches wide and long) into the cut face of a potato half.




  1. With the cutter still in place, use a paring knife to cut the potato from around the heart (a parent's job).




  1. Remove the cutter, then dip the heart into green acrylic paint and press it onto the paper. Repeat to make two more leaves, then use a paintbrush to add a swish for the stem.
