Today we made a shamrock footprint craft for St. Patrick's Day! There are two different ways you can make this art project. You can use a real child's footprint OR you can have them use their own hands to make it! The kids had fun using their fists because they called them "Leprechaun Footprints" hehe! I think the real footprints would be WAY better just because it's more meaningful but sometimes we just don't want to make a complete mess ;)
You will need a white piece of paper, green washable paint, a paintbrush, and gold glitter.
Start by painting the side of your fist so it looks like the shape of a baby's foot. You will need both hands to do this because your footprints will face each other to make the 3 leaf clover shape.
Stamp your fist onto the white piece of paper in three spots, then switch hands and repeat. Add an extra stamp to the bottom to make it look like the shamrock's stem.
Using your pointer finger make "big toe" prints on each footprint.
Then dip your pinky finger into the green paint and make 4 more little toes on each foot, except the bottom stem one.
Sprinkle some gold glitter and let dry.
This step is optional since the art project looks ADORABLE already but you can paint in the white spaces to make it look more like a shamrock. I hope you enjoy and share with friends!
