Painting Shamrocks!

My first official craft is so simple, yet fun! Let's hope by starting with a St. Patrick's Day craft the luck of the Irish will follow me thoughout this blog!!;0) All I did was draw a shamrock on green paper and put out green paint!

My daughters found a sponge in with the paintbrushes and made little 'shamrocks' all around. (The last picture shows the sponges and an explanation.)
These are the sponges the girls used. My Mom gave them to me when my Grandma was in the hospital, she thought they would make a fun print for painting and she was right! We have used them for many painting projects. They are called disposable oral swabs and you can buy them in a package. I think the real purpose is to moisten patients mouths who are not allowed to drink water, however from a Moms point of view they make a great flower print!!:0)

  1. That is so funny, we paint with those swabs too! They work great for the little hands.
