Having a 4yr and 1.5 yr it is great when I can find something for them both to do together.  The Fine Motor Skills St. Patrick’s Day Clover Craft {for toddlers & preschoolers} was perfect for them to do together.  It is no secret we love torn paper crafts for little brother and scissor skills for big brother.  So with St. Patrick’s Day approaching it was time to do just that.  I chose a clover or shamrock theme for them this time.  It is great to be able to have a craft for them both to do together.  It is also great that they are working on their fine motor skills in the process.

Fine Motor Skills St. Patrick’s Day Clover Craft

{for toddlers & preschoolers}

What we used:
white cardstock
green construction paper
green marker
glue
safety scissors (for big brother).
What we did:
I traced a clover out on the cardstock with a marker.  I then got out the remaining supplies.  I called the kids in to get started.  Little brother tore his paper up and big brother cut his paper into pieces.  Once they were done they got out the glue.  They squeezed glue over their clovers and then applied the green paper to it.  We then let the glue dry the rest of the day.  A simple St. Patrick’s Day craft that is fun and great for all ages(toddler, preschooler +).  The kids even work on their fine motor skills and scissor skills while creating their craft.  Tearing paper is great for building up the tiny hand muscles.  For big brother he got to put his hand muscles to work using the scissors.  Something that takes practice to get good at.
As always we hope you and your kids can have some fun with this too.
