painting shamrocks with various household items

St. Patrick’s Day Painting

Texture painting is a hit every time! Find a few objects that have – or can be used to make – a shamrock shape and start experimenting.


Did you use potatoes to paint as a kid?

I did – and I still remember it as a fun, funky thing to do!

Since my trio love to paint and love to get their hands dirty, I thought some textured painting fun would be a great St. Patrick’s Day craft.

We gathered our supplies, our green paint, and off we went! It was fun to have the kids guess what items they thought would make a great shamrock shape before we started and then compare the results.

I was sure the green pepper would work well, and I had high hopes for the wine corks. I ended up pleasantly surprised by the cotton balls.
