What we used:
green foam paint
foam clovers and white paper
tray to try and keep the mess in one place.
What we did:
My toddler had both foam sheets and paper to paint. I sat the try out and let him take over.
I had sat the paper under his foam sheets to start. Once he painted his foam clovers he moved on to the paper.
Hands on fun for the kids to explore textures. The paint dries on the clovers and you cannot really see it anymore. This part is just for the process and experience. The part I feel is the most important for growing minds. Sensory art is a great way for kids to learn with creating.
What my 5 yr did:
My oldest child did not want the foam clovers. He got foam paint and white paper. I set him up on a tray as well.
He went to painting his paper. And touching the paints. His hands were a little green the rest of the day but gone by morning.
Once he was finished painting we left the papers to dry. Later I came back and traced out clovers on them. I cut them out and you can see the final product below. So bright and pretty. These would be fun to use in a garland/ banner or St. Patrick’s Day Crown (see our Fall Crowns here for directions). Just change out adding these on the outside of the crown.
