St. Patrick’s Day Simple Art Ideas

Keener was excited to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at school. I was hearing all about the leprechaun who was coming to his class and leaving a surprise! His teachers have left some big shoes to fill, in just about every way possible!

To “celebrate” the day, I found some simple art activities. If you have a printer, you can easily print them off. If not, the design of a shamrock and a rainbow are easy enough for even the most basic artist among us!

Dot Art

I found this idea on 3 Dinosaurs. Scroll about half way down the page and you can click on the link to the download. She has 16 pages of printables available to download for free. I printed the rainbow on page 7 and plan to have the kids use dot stickers and/or crayons/markers. We had the dot markers but Grace ate them…

These circle dot stickers are wonderful and we use them for all different art projects.

Shamrock Shape Art

Over at Oh My Creative, Susan has an adorable shamrock art project that involves 4 simple supplies:

  • glue
  • scissors
  • green construction paper
  • shamrock drawn or printed

Check out her post for the full details! You simply cut the paper into small squares and rectangles and have kids glue them on the shamrock. I found a template for a basic shamrock from Primary Games website that is easy to print. If you don’t have a printer, it is a fairly easy shape to draw free hand on a piece of white paper.
