It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Looking ahead…

To St. Patrick’s day!

Which, to my mind, is a big fat ‘so what’, being as I’m neither Irish nor Catholic. But still, green is my favourite colour, and in my job, I’ll take any excuse for a craft!

And THIS, this is a fine, fine St. Patrick’s Day craft. Go have a look. Aren’t they lovely?

Coffee filters, water-soluble markers, pinking shears, cardstock and glue. We can do that! It’s even educational. “Yellow and blue make green, kids! Isn’t that COOL??”

There are other ideas for children’s crafts on this site, which I discovered through One Pretty Thing, a fabulous resource for craft ideas.

I am so going to make these with the kids. I may even send some to my kids, just for the fun of making more! Heck, it’s almost enough to make me start drinking coffee at home…

  2. I like it! My older two think they’re too old for crafts and my toddler can’t quite color “in the lines” yet but he could decorate the heck out of some coffee filters! I can already picture the joy if I let him use the spray bottle, too! 🙂
    Thanks, Mary!
