As its St. Patrick’s day on the 17 march we decided to make shamrocks out of my girls new favourite shape, hearts.
I first used gum paper to cut out paper hearts. I gave these to Posy and Puppy along with a tub with wet kitchen roll to wet the gum paper, and some coloured paper.
Since we had the children’s cousins with us (aged 12 and 9) I wanted them to join in with the fun too.
I found this picture
From Wikipedia here.
As soon as I saw it I thought that would be great to copy using small pieces of gum paper. When they first looked at it both instantly said, no way I can’t to that!!!
I just told them to give it ago and it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Here is the result.
Please excuse my spelling but I have dyslexia and do my best. Please don’t hesitate to correct me.
