St Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day

Today we will celebrate St. Patrick’s day by making a paper plate Shamrock.

St Patrick’s day (17th March) has become a global celebration of Irish culture during which we commemorate the patron saint of Ireland, St Patrick, who helped to bring Christianity to country in the fifth century.

In Toddletown we absolutely love celebrations and art. We know that artistic activities help children learn other subjects such as reading and maths. It also promotes visual, motor and social development and they can use it as a communication tool too.

Materials needed

3 small paper plates

1 large craft stick

Green paint




First paint the plates with green paint. After painting them we sprinkle glitter all over them while the paint is still wet.

After the plates and stick are completely dry it’s time to assemble the shamrock.

Start by gluing down the front two paper plates, making sure they overlap slightly. Then glue the remaining paper plate at the back between the two front plates. Finally, glue or tape the stick stem to the back of the shamrock.
