Dimensional Shamrock!

Day 1 of the week - The theme this week is St. Patrick's Day. The letters of the week are s, U, u the number of the week is 15.

Project - Dimensional Shamrock - I saw this project on under Dimensional Shamrock. Directions - Trace shamrock template (from the website) onto green card stock. Cut out the 2 shamrock shapes (Connor and Lauren did their own cutting). Cut slits into the shamrocks (the templates show where to cut the slits), decorate the cut out shamrock's with glitter, buttons . . ., slip shamrocks into place to create dimensional shamrock. **Decorate both sides of the shamrocks - we did not do this. The finished product will look much nicer if both sides are decorated!*** Materials Needed - green card stock, scissors, shamrock template, glue, glitter, buttons
