Last week I showed you a picture of the canvas print I picked up in the clearance section of a local discount store.The plan was to transform it into a simple St Patrick’s Day artwork with the kiddies.
After surfing the internet for a bit of inspiration, we came up with this….
Initially, the plan was to just paint the shamrock, but on drying we found that the paint was cracking. Not wanting to persist painting to have the same problem happen again, we chose to cover the shamrock in buttons. Master C loved picking out the green buttons from my button collection – I couldn’t have dreamt up a better fine motor skills activity!So this piece is now out on show and we are planning on some St Patrick’s Day treats for tomorrow. We have made some hideous green cupcakes for morning tea and have planned a leprechaun treasure hunt with a horde of gold covered chocolate coins. It should be a bit of fun.
Happy St Patrick’s Day.
