Shamrock Salt Painting

"This fun craft is the perfect activity for St. Patrick's Day this year. Print off a normal clover to complete this craft. For best results, print the clover on cardstock paper. To make this salt painting, trace the clover with glue. Next, you will pour salt over the glue as if it were glitter. After shaking the excess salt off, you will use the paint to color the salt painting green. You kids will love this unique activity!"

  1. Trace around the image on the coloring page with glue.
