Tissue Paper Shamrock

We made shamrocks out of tissue paper and paper plates today. It was a lot of fun! We cut tissue paper squares and then we cut out a Shamrock shape out of paper plates. Then we spread some glue on one section of the plate and took our pencils and put a square of tissue on the end of the pencil and smoothed it up. Then we put the tip of the pencil on the plate and continued to do this until the Shamrock was covered.

My 2 and a half year old had no interest in this project the way I had intended, which was absolutely fine. She preferred to just cover the plate with the tissue paper. She was very happy with her shamrock and so was I. My 5 year old was very determined to cover the shamrock and did a great job!
Supplies needed:
tissue paper
paper plates
