Are you looking for a fun St. Patrick’s Day kids activity ? These Shamrock Suncatchers are a great boredem buster for a rainy day or if you’re snowed in and you can’t get the kids to go outside outside. Let’s get started!
- Shamrock Cookie Cutters (Michael’s has them right now for $.99)
- Pony Beads In Various Colors
- Cookie Sheet
- Cooking Spray
- Drill with Drill Bit or Hand Drill
- String or fishing line to hang
Step 1: Rub or spray some cooking spray onto your shamrock cookie cutters. This will help release the suncatchers from the cookie cutters after they are done melting.
Step 2: Fill the cookie cutter with roughly one layer of pony beads.
Step 3: Bake the suncatchers in the oven at 350 degrees / until melted or you can bake these out on the grill if it’s a nice day. Make sure to watch these closely so they don’t over heat and burn.
Step 4: After the shamrocks have cooled, push them out of the cookie cutters. Next, take a drill with a small drill bit or a hand drill and drill a hole to hang.
Look at how great these turned out! These are so fun, and my daughters were amazed at how pretty they were once they were finished!
Here’s to having some Shamrock fun on your own!
