St. Patrick’s Day Kids Craft: Cereal Box Shamrock

St. Patrick's Day Kids Craft: Cereal Box Shamrock

My five year old son, Brysen, loves to craft with mom.  He pulls his chair right up to the craft table and says “What are we making today mom!”  St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner we decided to make something to decorate for the holiday. We had fun creating a four leaf clover out of a cereal box from the recycle bin and streamers left over from a birthday party.

Trace the clover stencil on the cereal box.  If you do not have a clover stencil you can cut one out like I did on my circuit at 11 1/2″.  After you have traced it on the cereal box cut it out.

Cut multiple pieces of stream in 3 inch lengths.

Place the pencil eraser side down in the center of the streamer and twist wrapping it around the end.  Once secured on the pencil eraser dip in glue.

Place glue side down on the cereal box clover.  Once secured in place pull pencil up leaving the streamer in place.

Continue placing streamers on the clover until it is completely covered. This was so easy for my 5 year old to do.  He had fun seeing how fast he could put them in place and how quickly it could fill up.

I think he had more fun afterwards teasing mommy by not taking a serious picture.  He was very proud of his craft and it lives in the kitchen where he can see it every day.
