In my last post, I shared how I get a kick out of introducing my boys to things I enjoyed as a kid. This is another one of those activities! I have bright, happy memories of elementary school crafts, particularly this style of tissue paper art. Shared below is a free printable for creating Scrunchy Shamrock Art. It’s fun for school or home, develops fine-motor skills, and looks awfully cute on the refrigerator!

3. Scrunch a small square of tissue paper around the eraser end of a pencil.
4. Holding the pencil around the tissue paper, dip the tissue paper covered end into glue. Press the tissue paper onto the shamrock and release.
5. Repeat directions 3 and 4 until the shamrock is completely covered with tissue paper.
My oldest son preferred to squeeze a small drop of glue onto his paper, then press the tissue paper onto it (as opposed to dipping it). I adore mini bottles of tacky craft glue for kid’s crafts—they are the perfect size for small hands and easy to refill.
