I found this idea by subscribing to mommysavers.com. Cut green peppers in half, dip them in green paint and make your own shamrock print painting! Sounded simple enough and I thought it'd be a fun holiday craft. Well, it was just okay. The peppers I got weren't the best shapes, both resembled flowers more than shamrocks. And it was rather difficult to get the pepper cut so flat that the print would be a solid shape. We still had fun with it.

I think we'll try potato prints next time!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
