Clover Card

What You Need:

  • Watercolor paper
  • Tissue paper in blue and green
  • Cotton balls
  • Metallic pipe cleaners
  • Green oil pastels
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • Glue stick
  • Watercolor paint
  • Paintbrush

What You Do:

  1. Have your child fold a sheet of watercolor paper in half to make the base of the card.
  2. Draw two diagonal lines across the front of the card to create a section for the rainbow.
  3. Now, have your child paint the rainbow in between the diagonal lines. Be sure to remind your child to wash the brush between colors.
  4. Next, tear up some of the blue tissue paper and glue the pieces to the top part of the card to create the sky. Use layers to create a cool texture!
  5. Have your child use the oil pastels to make strong vertical strokes, on the bottom part of the card, to create a “grassy” texture.
  6. Cut four pieces of metallic pipe cleaners that are all different lengths. These will be the clover stems.
  7. Layer a few pieces of green tissue paper together and draw some four-leaf clovers on the top layer. Cut them out, and place some glue in between each layer to keep them together.
  8. Have your child glue the back of each clover to a pipe cleaner. Repeat until there are four clovers.
  9. Glue the clover stems to the bottom part of the card. Make sure you don't glue the top part down so they can bend outward for a 3-D effect!
  10. Your child can finish off their lucky card by pulling apart some cotton balls and gluing them into the sky for clouds.
  11. Encourage your child to write a message inside the card and give it to someone they love!
