We loved our last bleeding art tissue paper craft so much that we wanted to do it again! This time we tried it out for a cute little shamrock craft for kids. I love the way the different greens all blend and create a marbled look.
This is another easy craft for kids that doesn’t take much time at all. Just the way we like it.
Shamrock Craft for Kids
For this craft you will need:
- White Vinegar
- White Card stock Paper (or paper plates)
- Green kid-safe Paints
- White Construction Paper
- Plastic Fork
- A Circle Paper Punch 1-2 inch (<–Affiliate Link)
- Bleeding Art Tissue Paper (<– Affiliate Link)
The first step is one of the most fun for my kids. Punching the circles from the card stock paper. Let them punch away. It’s great for building hand strength and fine motor skills.
While they are punching the paper out, choose a few different shades of green from your bleeding art tissue paper. Tear those into little pieces and let them place the pieces around on top of the circles.
Fill up a bowl or measuring cup with vinegar and let them use the dropper to drip vinegar onto the tissue paper. TIP – For our last project we used water. I think the vinegar helps the color to bleed through more vibrantly. Let the tissue paper colors soak into the circles for 5-10 minutes then remove them.
After the circles have dried somewhat, show your child how to arrange the circles to form a shamrock. Then let them do their own! Once they have placed some shamrocks on their paper, let them use a q-tip, paintbrush or even their finger to draw the stems. We used a plastic fork to paint on the grass.
And that’s it! A simple and cute shamrock craft for kids!
