Help Your Toddler or Preschooler Tune Her Fine Motor Skills, While Having Fun Creating a Shamrock!
For over a thousand years, the Irish have celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on March 17. The shamrock, leprechauns, rainbows, and a pot of-gold are all associated with St. Patrick’s Day. The plant is the symbol of Ireland, not to be confused with the four-leaf clover. On St. Patrick's Day, it was customary to wear a shamrock on the lapel of your coat for good luck. Ireland’s magic number is three and the three petals that make up the shamrock are supposed to bring good luck. Many people claim the shamrock represents faith, hope, and love, or a number of other things but that's not necessarily true. It was actually used by Patrick to teach the Holy Trinity—the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Here's a fun shamrock beading activity for St. Patrick's Day! This will help improve your toddler's fine motor skills while teaching her a little bit about the holiday.
Here's what you will need for this activity
1. Jumbo Lacing Beads
2. Pipe cleaners (green)
3. A piece of white construction paper
4. A hole punch
5. A green marker
