Shamrock Collage

This is a classic activity that can altered for any holiday/season just by changing the colors and shapes.

First you cut out two squares of clear contact paper the same size.
You peel the back off one and lay it face up on the table and let the kids go at it using tissue paper and glitter.
When they are done you peel the back off the second sheet of contact paper and stick on the first one and rub them together.
Then you cut out into the desired shape. I can not free hand draw as you can see with this messed up shamrock.
We did the same thing with Christmas trees around Christmas time and hearts on valentines day.


  1. I love those collages, they look so pretty hanging up.

    Thanks for linking, have a great weekend.

  2. Amber,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I am glad to have found you too. You have loads of great ideas here! Would it be okay if I link to your shamrock collage in a collection of St. Patty's ideas on my educational blog:
    If it is okay with you I'd love to share your idea and link back to you.
    Have a great weekend!
