Shamrock Stamping Activity For Kids

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.

    What a fun idea! I have lots – ahem! I mean a few… corks around my house. I might have to give this a try (yes, me; myself). LOL!
    I found you today thru the the Pinterest Power Power at The Taylor House, where I’m #79. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!
