Crafty Tuesday March 9th, 2010 – Shamrocks and Bunnies

Spring is such a fun time of year!  I love spring crafts.  Yesterday the girls and I made two crafts – Shamrocks and Bunnies.  The Bunnies were from a kit that we paid $1.79 for at Joann’s.  The Shamrocks are from some felt we had at home, a magnetic felt sheet, and some glitter glue which were purchased at JoAnns.  I think it is fun to highlight a store bought craft as well as a homemade craft.

Store Bought Bunnies:

Hard at work!
You can always tell when a child dresses herself.  ;-)
Gee, can you tell who made which bunny?
The green Shamrocks were super easy to make.  I googled “Shamrock template” and printed one of the results.  I cut two shamrocks out of the magnetic felt.  Then I cut six hearts from regular green felt.  The girls glued the hearts on to the shamrocks and decorated with glitter.  They are now proudly hung on the fridge!
Another alternative is foam shamrock shapes that are precut and ready for glitter!

Have you done any fun crafts with your kids lately?  I would love to hear about it and see some pictures!


This Shamrock Hair Bow tutorial is another great craft to St. Patrick’s Day!
