Make Patterned Shamrock Art
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year by creating mosaic shamrock art with your child. She'll explore spacial relations and repeating patterns as she arranges her shamrock cut-outs into a unique design. Introduce her to the work of famous artists such as M.C. Escher and the technique of tessellation to give her inspiration for her own design.
Did you know? A tessellation is a pattern of shapes that fit together without gaps or overlaps. Play around with the shape of the shamrocks to see how well you can get them to fit together!
What You Need:
- Construction paper in green, white, and another light color such as beige or pale yellow
- Small piece of cardboard (optional)
- Shamrock stencil (optional)
