Shamrock Rolling Pin Art Fun
Set out tempera paints in yellow, white, and shades of green. Invite your little learner to spoon dabs of paint over a paper shamrock.
Then ask your little one to roll a rolling pin over the paint.
A paper towel roll works well to move paint around too. On the shamrock below, a pattern of paint was spread vertically. Then a paper towel roll was rolled up and down to give the striped effect. There are diagonal lines left from the paper roll on the shamrock…I kind of like them!
The paint can also be splattered on diagonally, with the rolling pin to squish the paint around positioned the same way.
