Make a Scented Shamrock
The shamrock, a three-leafed clover, is the symbol of Ireland. Originally used by native Celtic people as medicine, it was also believed to be good luck. It is now a point of pride for Irish people, and a symbol of Saint Patrick's Day. This March, try decorating your home with these scented shamrocks--sure to fill your home with Irish spirit.
What You Need:
- Construction paper
- 1 box green Jell-O mix
- Empty saltshaker or spice container
- Hole punch and ribbon or string (optional)
What You Do:
- Cut a shamrock shape from the construction paper. Have your child paint glue all over the cutout.
- Pour the Jell-O mix into the shaker and sprinkle the powder on the glue. Shake off any excess powder and let the glue dry.
- Use the shamrock as a gretting card, or punch a hole in its top, loop ribbon or string through the hole, and hang it from a doorknob or picture hook.
