Smiling Shamrocks

Today's project actually took two days. Yesterday the kids painted shamrocks by mixing yellow and blue paint. I traced the clovers onto white paper and put blobs of paint right in the middle.
Using a paintbrush, the kids swirled it around until it turned green and then spread it around their paper.
I loved doing it this way because then each shamrock was a slightly different color!

Today I cut them out and the kids added wiggle eyes and a red piece of yarn for the smile.
Wait, I forgot a step. First use as much glue as possible, then add the eyes and mouth!

I trimmed the pieces of yarn that were too long.

Can't help but smile when you see them, right?
