Painted Shamrock!

Day 3 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 - Painted Shamrock- Directions - I traced a shamrock template onto white card stock. Connor and Lauren painted the shamrock green and sprinkled silver and green glitter onto the wet paint. Then, they wrote the word Shamrock on the bottom of the paper. I wanted to work on painting and staying in the lines while painting. They did a great job. I really emphasized giving your best effort, taking pride in work, and trying! Addie also painted a shamrock, after she woke up from her nap. She did a great job - she did end up painting the counter and my hand! Materials Needed - white card stock, shamrock template, green paint, paintbrushes, silver and green glitter, green marker

  38. Wahoo for Friday Follower. I think it is excellent that so many people have discovered your blog and are now following - you deserve it.

    Thank you so much for passing the Sunshine Award onto me, I am touched and greatly appreciate your kind words.

    We have not done any shamrock crafts yet, so you have got me thinking about what we might do for this. We have spent time last week working on rainbow activities - we got a bit carried away with rainbow fun!!
