You know what always reminds me of St. Patrick's Day? Rainbows and shamrocks. Also, leprechauns, the color green, and pinches. (But, I hate the pinching part of these holiday, so I try to forget about that part.) Anyway, back to the rainbows and shamrocks.
We got out our craft supplies and decided to make a St. Patrick's Day craft. We combined our favorite parts into this fun shamrock rainbow craft.

For the first step, we painted rainbow stripes on our white paper. My first grader painted hers in the correct color order. My preschooler did hers in what ever way struck her fancy, including adding polka dots.
I love the rainbow paper so much! It would have been pretty to stop here, but we wanted to add more.
We took the green construction paper and cut it into quarters. We folded the quarters in half and cut out hearts, three in total. We also cut a stem from the extra paper.
After our watercolor paintings were dry, we glued our hearts down in the shape of a shamrock. The process was truly simply, but the results were so pretty. It makes me smile just to see them on our wall.
Get out your watercolors and paint a rainbow!
