Tissue Paper Clover

Tissue Paper Clover Activity

Your child can celebrate St. Patrick's Day by creating this textured clover that makes a great decoration. It's fun to touch and even more enjoyable to look at!

What You Need:

  • Tissue paper, pre-cut into 1" squares (dark and light green, white)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • White construction paper
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Have your child draw a giant clover on the white sheet of construction paper. Encourage him to draw it as large as he can to fill the paper.
  2. Now have him apply glue inside a small portion of the clover. Working in small sections will help ensure your glue doesn't dry before you use it.
  3. Place a tissue square on top of the glue and have your kid press the eraser end of a pencil into the center of the tissue. Twist and gather the tissue paper up around the bottom of the pencil.
  4. Press down from a moment to make sure the twisted tissue piece will stick on its own. Gently release the pencil and the tissue will stay in place.
  5. Your kid should apply tissue paper until the entire clover is filled.

Helpful Tip: Encourage your child to use different shades of tissue paper and to create patterns with the colors he's using.
