3 Easy Shamrock Crafts That Kids Will Love

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! I wanted to share these easy shamrock crafts that kids will love. Your child will have three different ways to paint their lucky charm. Each style is suitable for toddlers, preschoolers and older children. I can’t guarantee that these crafts will be mess-free because kids will always find a way to get paint anywhere. However, I know they will have a great time. You only need a few supplies that may already be in your home. There’s also a free shamrock template included to complete these crafts.
