With the Kids

Fuzzy Shamrock Craft for St. Patrick’s Day

My sons love those baby books that have touchy-feely parts in them, even now that they’re not babies anymore. Here’s a craft for kids that creates a furry shamrock, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Kids will enjoy making a little decorative picture, a greeting card for Grandma or maybe even the cover of a notebook, with these fun fuzzy shamrocks.

So what’s the secret fuzzy ingredient? Velour pads, like the ones you put on the bottom of tile coasters.

Supplies for Fuzzy Shamrock Card:

  • A package of velour pads (I found mine at the dollar store)
  • Craft foam or card stock
  • A marker

Instructions: Stick four circles together in a group on cardstock or foam, draw a stem, and decorate as desired. Easy!
