Well, it’s just about time to be kissing the Blarney Stone and looking for the little green guys running around through the clover in the front yard. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and while the adults are planning their wardrobe and where to drink a green beer or two, the kids can get creative with some fun ways to celebrate this holiday full of cheer.
We love rainbows around here and searching for the end of them is always an adventure. But, making traditional ones to hang in the house can be a bit tricky. So, we went for making a tissue paper rainbow wreath to brighten the house while were still waiting for the arrival of Spring.
Here’s what you need:
- a large piece of cardboard like a pizza box.
- large circle tracers (we used bowls)
- tissue paper in red, yellow, orange, green, purple and blue
- glue stick
1. Trace out a wreath pattern with the bowls and then cut out of the cardboard.
2. Take the glue stick and cut-up tissue paper and begin making the layers of the rainbow around the cardboard.
3. Take a piece of string and tie it around the wreath to hang.
This simple project is a great way to use up tissue paper from presents and a fun way to brighten up any room.
Happy St. Patty’s Day.
