This is an easy, quick, and fun activity to do with children around St. Patrick’s Day. It also involves little supplies and supply cost.
Here’s a simple way to make a shamrock stamp for St. Patrick’s Day activities.
Here’s what you need:
- 3 or 4 Wine Corks
- Hot Glue Gun
- Rubber Bands
Hot glue the sides of the corks together to make a triangle for a three leaf clover. With a four leaf clover, line them up in a square. While the glue is still warm/hot, move and adjust the corks so the bottoms are all even. Wrap with a couple of rubber bands. This will provide kids with more of a grip to grip the stamps.
Now that you have your homemade shamrock stamp made, onto the actual stamping. When working with paint, I always put newspaper down. I like to work outside whenever possible. I know this is a difficult time of year with the weather and all. However, never rule out basement space or even a small area in the garage.
Put a little paint on a plate. Dip in the paint. Have the child stamp all over the paper.
Take a paint brush and go back in and add the stems.
There you have it! A great stamp for kids to use for a St. Patrick’s Day activity.
