I have always enjoyed doing crafts with my little ones, especially this shamrock craft, because I love when holidays are involved.  At the same time, I know how complex some of the crafts can become.

A close up of Paper Shamrock craft for toddlers.Next thing I know, I am doing the entire craft while my toddler is playing in glue or not even interested at all. Over time, I have figured out one tried and true craft that can easily be done for every holiday. It is so easy that all you need is construction paper and glue (we love this glue stick!).

No prep time needed.


For today, we are going to focus on the holiday, St. Patrick’s Day.

1. Sit down with your toddler and draw a shamrock on a white piece of paper.

2. Hand him a sheet of the green construction paper.

3. Let them tear away! You could give him a bowl to put the pieces in, or just let him pile them on the table. Tearing paper is such  a good fine motor exercise.

4. Glue the pieces of paper to the shamrock outline. I helped my toddler cover the shamrock in glue and then he put the pieces all over it.  When we were finished, I cut out the shamrock shape.

Other ways you can use this? Make outlines of pumpkins, apples, flowers, hearts, Christmas trees, Easter eggs… the list goes on and on. Have fun and enjoy a simple holiday craft with your toddlers that they can actually do.
