Monoprint four leaf clover

Sharing is caring!

Have you ever tried monoprinting with your kids? It’s an interesting painting technique that my own boys love. They  used it to make their Valentine’s Day cards for their classmates and teachers. They had to make more than 20 each but monoprinting made it easy and they really enjoyed it. With St Patrick’s Day just next weekend we decided to make a monoprint four leaf clover craft.

Each clover will turn out different than the one before and that’s why monoprinting is so much fun.

We have already decorated with paper plate St Patrick’s Day wreaths that my kindergartner and I made last weekend but you can’t have too make shamrocks, right? These four leaf clovers can be glued on a string and turned into a beautiful garland to hang by the fireplace.
