St. Patrick’s Day Craft – Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or any day for that matter, with this adorable and easy to make shamrock pinwheel – it’s basically a green flower pinwheel but we’ll call it a shamrock pinwheel!
For every holiday I try to make at least ONE kid’s craft. St. Patrick’s Day is less than a week away so I needed something quick and easy. I found the directions for this Shamrock Pinwheel in Family Fun magazine March 2014 issue along with a link for the Spinning Shamrock (download by clicking here) template.
Green Cardstock – I like to use Astrobrights for crafting
Green Pencil – You can find cute pencils at Target, the Dollar Tree, Walmart, etc.
I used green cardstock to print out the shamrock template and then cut it out using sharp scissors.
I folded the area marked with the dotted line inward and then placed a thumbtack in the center and attached this to a pencil eraser.
*Be sure to leave enough space between the shamrock and the eraser to allow for spinning.
