Shamrock Collage Craft

Shamrock Craft

Some type of shamrock craft is a must for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the classroom. This year, we made these shamrock collages.

Collages are a great way for children to creatively express themselves, and a simple way for mothers and teachers to incorporate learning. Descriptive words were used to point out various aspects of the materials; we talked about their colors, shapes, textures, compositions, and patterns.

There is an everlasting supply of collage materials. However, it is all about quality and organization. Whether if it’s in an activity or in an art center, a thrown together mishmash of miscellany is unlikely to a inspire a preschooler’s creativity. Be sure to use a method – for example, paper stacked neatly on a shelf, a container for glue bottles and sticks, a bin for recycled materials, and another for buttons and pom poms, and so on. Presenting these things in an orderly fashion will aid children in recognizing artistic possibilities. For this shamrock craft, a plastic compartment serving tray was used to display the green goodies.
