Shamrock Suncatcher

My friend invited us over for a St. Pat’s crafting playdate.  We made a shamrock suncatcher!  It is a great project for preschoolers or elementary students.  Younger kids might need help cutting or gluing, but they will definitely be able to do the confetti all by themselves!

Materials:

  • two pieces of green scrapbook paper (or green construction paper or cardstock)
  • glitter and/or confetti
  • wax paper
  • glue

Time investment: 15 minutes

Difficulty:  Easy to do….can be difficult to clean up.

  1. Trace or freehand draw a shamrock on green scrapbook paper.
  2. Cut out INSIDE the shamrock and throw away.
  3. Use the shamrock outline to trace on another sheet of green paper and repeat step 2.
  4. Glue a piece of wax paper to the green paper with shamrock cut-out.
  5. Spread glue over the wax paper and sprinkle glitter or confetti on it.
  6. Glue another wax paper on top so the glitter is trapped between the two wax papers.
  7. Glue the other green paper on top (make sure the shamrocks line up!)
