green pom poms (dollar store)
green buttons (dollar store)
printed shamrock shape on paper (try this shamrock template from Spoonful)
any other green embellishments: green stickers, green tissue paper, green rhinestones, etc.
1. Ask your child to help you sort the different embellishments into piles (great sorting practice). To make it a really fun fine motor skill exercise, ask your toddler to use tongs to pick them up!
2. Dip the embellishment into glue and ask your child to fill in the shamrock using any green craft materials they like!
3. Let your shamrock dry and practice saying this Shamrock poem!
I am a shamrock
Who hides on the ground.
When you come and find me,
Don't make a sound.
Pick me up very carefully;
Don't let me fall apart.
