St. Patrick’s Day Craft -Button Cards

 
I love all holidays.  Its such a great excuse for me to craft with the kids, not that we need one.  I am so happy that me and my boys can have fun together crafting.  I love to think up ideas and they love playing with glue, paper, buttons….  It works out great for both parties.  We also enjoy the time we spend together while making holiday crafts.  We laugh and cut up.  These crafting memories I will hold in my heart forever.

 


With St. Patrick’s Day coming up it was time to start brainstorming a new craft idea for us.  St.  Patrick’s Day button cards came to mind.  I set out to look through craft supplies to see what we could make.  I knew a clover card would be fun and as I gathered supplies the thought of a pot of gold under a rainbow came to mind also. I couldn’t wait to see how they would turn out.  I gathered everything together before calling my kids to the table.

What we used: 

white cardstock

 

green and black construction paper

 

glue sticks

 

scissors

 

colored buttons

 

marker


What we did:  
 
I folded the white cardstock in half and cut with a paper cutter.  You can do this with scissors.  My sweet husband drew a clover and cauldrons for the gold (I folded the paper in half so I could get 2 out of his drawing). I counted out buttons and placed on plates with cut outs.  Now I had the kids come to the table.  They glued the cut outs on to the cards.  Then they added the buttons on.  My boys are 4yr and almost 2yr.  My husband and I helped them while they glued.  We even added a little learning fun by going over the colors and shapes of the buttons.  My oldest thought these cards were so cool.  My tot was super excited to use the glue stick.  We all had fun making these cards and even got to spend time making family memories in the process.  Now we have cute cards to give family or friends.  We hope you can make some button cards and memories with your kids too.
