St Patrick’s Day Craft: Four Leaf Clover Apple Art

St Patrick’s Day is a rather special day for me in more ways than one. Although Australian, having an Irish background always meant St Patrick’s Day was a day of celebration. Secondly, the child I thought I would never have, my son, was conceived on St Patrick’s Day. I guess you can say this really was the luck of the Irish!

St Patrick’s Day Craft: Four Leaf Clover Apple Art

St Patrick's Day Craft l Four Leaf Clover Apple Art l mum-bo-jumbo.com I have been experimenting with some art and craft activities with my son and he inspired me to share this simple St Patrick’s Day craft with you! It is very easy to do and is suited for toddlers to preschool aged children.

What You Need:

  • An apple
  • A sharp knife
  • Light green paint
  • Paint palette (I used a recycled polystyrene fruit tray)
  • Construction paper
  • Thin paint brush or apple stalk with tweezers

Step 1

Carefully cut the apple in half. Spread out the light green paint onto the paint palette. St Patrick's Day Craft l Four Leaf Clover Apple Art l What You Need l mum-bo-jumbo.com

Step 2

Dip one half of the apple into the green paint and stamp this sideways onto construction paper.

Step 3

Dip the other half of the apple into the paint and stamp it in the opposite direction. Make sure the second apple stamp is partly over the top of the original apple stamp. St Patrick's Day Craft l Four Leaf Clover Apple Art l mum-bo-jumbo.com

Step 4

Using a thin paintbrush or the stalk from the apple, paint a stem on the bottom of the four leaf clover apple art stamp.

Step 5

Continue stamping the construction paper with the four leaf clover apple art until the paper is full! St Patrick's Day Craft l Four Leaf Clover Apple Art l Masterpiece l mum-bo-jumbo.com

    • Hi Ambika, my son gave it a good go but I did have to guide his hand. He loves painting and this is just another way for him to learn. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a lovely simple craft. We used to like potato stamping, so apple stamping would be good and it really does create a great four leaf clover!
