Lucky Shamrock Magnets Craft

For St. Patrick's Day, M2 and I made shamrock magnets. They don't take many supplies, are adorable, and best of all, M2 loved making them.



Supplies
1 piece dark green felt
1 piece light green felt
Scissors
Googly eyes
Hot glue gun
Stick on magnets
Glitter glue
Green pompoms

Cut the green felts into shamrock shapes (I did freehand, it's essentially four hearts with the tips connecting in the middle and the stem at the bottom). The light green should be a bit bigger
Glue the dark green onto the light green, forming a border, with the hot glue gun. Parents should do this step

With Eyes
Help your child glue on pompoms by putting a dab of hot glue onto the felt where they want to put the pompom to make a mouth then have them stick the pompom on

Do the same with the googly eyes. Do not let kids touch the hot glue gun!
Let your child decorate the shamrocks with glitter glue
Stick magnets on the back
