I have had so much fun sharing our St. Patrick’s Day activities for kids the past few weeks, but these shamrock sun catchers may be my favorite.
They are easy to make and perfect for all age groups.
To make your own shamrock sun catcher you will need:
- Wax paper
- Tacky glue
- Green construction paper
Cut out a shamrock in your green paper. Or a shamrock-esque shape and a little imagination.
Next, tear a piece of wax paper and fold it in half.
Cover one half with glue and spread it around until you have a thin layer.
Sprinkle your confetti (or sparkles as my daughter calls them) over the glue.
Tap it on the a table to remove the excess confetti and let dry.
Once dry glue the folded sides together.
Tape the wax paper to the back of your shamrock cutout and hang it in a window.
I added a ‘Lucky you’ and ‘Lucky me’ to my shamrocks to jazz them up a little.
Stand back and enjoy your festive shamrock sun catchers.
