Instructions:

Step 1: Find a shamrock shape you like online and print it off onto your papers. Or you can draw them yourself if you are gifted like that. I am not.

Step 2: Here is where the kids come in! Let them watercolor the back of each page. You can make them rainbows by using a bunch of colors, or just stick with the shades of green like we did.

Step 3: Once the paint is all dried, flip them over and follow the shape of the shamrock to cut them out.

Step 4: Grab your hole punch and punch two spaced holes in the same spot on each shamrock. This will ensure that they hang well.

Step 5: Grab your string and thread the shamrocks all together. Space them out however you would like, and hang them up!
