Making beaded shamrocks gives your child the opportunity to not only be creative with colors and patterns, but it will also help with fine motor skills. Beaded shamrocks can be fun for kids of all ages! For younger kids, allow them to place the beads on the pipe cleaners, leaving the twisting and bending to you. Older children can use this opportunity to be more independent on how they want their shamrocks to look by doing all the steps themselves. This mess-free craft can be done for any holiday as well (heart for Valentine’s Day, snowflake for Christmas, etc.).
How to make Beaded Shamrocks
If you’d like to make a larger beaded shamrock, you can use 3 pipe cleaners and make 3 separate hearts. Then twist them together using a 4th pipe cleaner as the stem.
Fork Leprechaun Faces
This is a fun art craft for older kids who enjoy painting and cutting out shapes! By allowing them to create the details on the leprechaun, they’re able to be more creative and express themselves.
