Looking for a fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day craft for the kiddos? Then try some potato painting and create your own four-leaf clover paintings!
- white or kraft cardstock
- WRMK Crop-a-Dile (or hole punch)
- washable craft pain
- paper plate/bowl
how to make potato paintings:
Cut the potato in half, then carve your shape on the exposed edge (we used a chipboard heart for a template but you can also cut your shape freehand).
Use a bowl (or plate with raised sides) for the paint, so excess can be wiped off before you begin stamping on to the paper.
To create a clover – get paint on the potato, stamp the heart, then rotate 45 degrees for each leaf. The kids used their fingers to create the stems – their favorite part!
Working with younger kids? Don cut out a “handle” on one of the potatoes by cutting away the sides of the potato about halfway, then cutting a hole through the center.
To complete the project, let the kids write their names on the paper, then punch holes at the top, tie with ribbon, and set aside to dry. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
