St. Patrick's Day Art

I found this idea by subscribing to 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.

My daughter decided to make them into purple flowers:

A few of our green pepper prints:

And my final project:

I think we'll try potato prints next time!

Lastly, I'll share this Irish Blessing that I love. Origin unknown, but some attribute it to St. Patrick.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
