Kids will have fun making a shamrock filled with rainbow colors using our free craft template, tissue paper, and creativity. It’s a perfect craft activity for kids to make this St. Patrick’s Day. 

Looking for a cute St. Patrick’s Day craft? We have it for you and your kids are going to love it. Our free Shamrock Craft Template includes adorable heart cut outs for kids to fill and show off their St. Patrick’s Day joy. It’s easy enough for young kids to make (my toddler had a blast with the tissue paper), and fun to make for older kids because they can create patterns to replicate stained glass. Once the craft is done it looks so pretty hanging on the wall or on a window that lets the light shine through it and makes the colors glow (just like real stained glass).

The craft template includes a 3 leaf template and a 4 leaf template for those of you who want to make a lucky 4 leaf clover.

Here is Little Puppy decorating his first St. Patrick’s Day craft. He LOVED the tissue paper so much! As you can see he stuck handfuls of tissue paper onto his craft. It felt like we had a party when he was all done. Next time I will give him a smaller pile of tissue paper-haha.

My two older kids (Little Dragon, age 7 and Little Tiger, age 9) liked taking their time to stick each individual piece of tissue paper onto their shamrock.

Little Tiger even decided to cut out her own design instead of use the heart template. Feel free to let your kids add their own touches of creativity. The results are always perfect!
