A Saint Patrick’s Day Craft

Now that Valentine’s Day is over, it’s time to start thinking about the next fun holiday, Saint Patrick’s Day.  There’s just something simple and playful about this day.  I love that no gifts or cards are exchanged, and it’s really just about having some fun.  Since I love color, Saint Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to throw in some rainbow crafts and decorations.

I am absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Astrobrights®Papers again this year as a Bright Mind ambassador, so I wanted to share this fun writing craft that you can have your students make using paper from Astrobrights.

This is a great Saint Patrick's Day craft that incorporates writing.

I started by giving each student a pot shape from Astrobrights Eclipse Black™ and a clover printed on Martian Green™ paper.  (You can download the clover HERE.)

Then, I gave each student a strip of Re-Entry Red™, Orbit Orange™, Solar Yellow™, Gamma Green™, Celestial Blue®, and Gravity Grape™.  The students wrote a sentence on each strip with a reason why they felt lucky.

This colorful Saint Patrick's Day craft is a great way to incorporate writing.

Next, I taped each strip to a black string and attached it to the pots.

Do you know the Brightest Teacher?

I’m partnering again this year with Astrobrights®Papers for the Brightest Teacher Contest, which kicked off this past week.

    I love this project and am going to do it with my first grade class! Thank you for sharing it! I am having trouble downloading the shamrock pattern. Is there any way that you’d be able to send it to me?
    Thank you so much!
    Happy March!
