Shamrocks or four leaf clovers as they are also known are very popular around St Patrick’s Day! They are said to bring good luck. 

At the start of March my kids and I always try to start some St Patrick’s Day crafts and we either choose between leprechaun crafts or something with shamrocks. 

Previously we made a shamrock clock craft which is proving to be very handy now that my daughter is starting to learn the time. 

I am also planning on making some pictures featuring shamrocks which we can use for decor. 

My latest idea is a 3D Shamrock card. I love pop up cards at any time of the year and have made others before for St Patrick’s Day. My easy leprechaun card is very popular with children.
