What You Need

Clover Craft

A green clover is often associated with March, so we’re going to create a green clover using some objects you may have around your home.

However, the most essential tools you’ll require are imagination and a little bit of luck! You’ll also need to grab:

  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Markers
  • Crayons

Once you’ve assembled these items, sit down with a friend or family member. To make the crafting experience even better, pop some popcorn or grab some sliced apples to enjoy while you work!

How to Cut a Shamrock Shape

Your four-leaf clover craft begins with a square piece of construction paper. Follow the steps listed below to cut out the perfect shamrock shape! This can be completed individually to develop or practice fine motor skills if you have older children or safety scissors for younger ones.

  1. To fold the paper in half diagonally, join the two corners.
  2. Fold the paper over again in another diagonal.
  3. Fold one corner toward the opposite corner.
  4. Turn the paper over and repeat the process on the opposite side.
  5. Draw a circular petal form with a deeper “V” on one side than the other on the folded line.
  6. Unfold your paper four-leaf clover and show it off!

Don’t get discouraged if your clover doesn’t look perfect on the first try. As long as you have enough construction paper, you can make as many clovers as you’d like until you’re happy with the result.

Coloring and Finishing the Clover

Once you have cut out your clover, it’s time to start adding some color. Of course, you can choose to color your craft in one of the traditional green hues, or you can go for something different.

Who said clovers can’t be rainbow?

To make the clover craft even more special when making it with your children, have a thoughtful discussion about what makes them feel fortunate. It might be a hug from their grandparents, a delectable dinner, a favorite book, a sport, or a toy that makes them happy.

Help them choose four items, and have them write one on each clover leaf.
