Activity > Crafts > "Shawn" the Shamrock or "Katie" the Clover Paper Craft

* When talking about plants you can introduce the shamrock and make your choice of these delightful crafts.

*  For younger children cut "Shawn" or "Katie" pieces in advance.  Older children may be able to help with the scissor cutting.

*  Follow the easy instructions for the craft on the link provided.

*  Tip:  For young two year olds you may want to print the color version or print the shamrock body on green construction paper to emphasize on the color, and the child will not be as tired to complete the craft.  Add tiny drops of glue on the desired spots and have child place the pieces -- indicate and call body parts by name  as a vocabulary builder.
 
*  For children 2.5 and older encourage to color and complete the crafts as much on their own as possible.
