All you need for these simple watercolor and Sharpie shamrocks is watercolors, a paint brush and a Sharpie.
We had ourselves quite a shamrock filled art day yesterday. Being the big bleeding tissue art fan that I am, I made some bleeding tissue paper painted shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day. My daughter began the project with me, but then chose a different direction. The end result is these easy and lovely watercolor and Sharpie shamrocks.
Bleeding tissue paper painting is a fun alternative to traditional painting. These bleeding tissue paper shamrocks are a fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day art idea.
Bleeding tissue paper is one of our favorites ways to paint. It is fun. It is messy and it produces very cool results. We have made a few bleeding tissue projects for Christmas and then Valentine’s Day. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we had to make one for St. Paddy’s, as well. I love these bleeding tissue paper shamrocks because they are so simple.
If you are looking for a quick and super easy arts and crafts project for the kids. It does not get much easier than this toothbrush painted rainbow.
For some reason in our house, we go through tooth brushes like crazy. We just replaced our last set of toothbrushes. I was about to throw them out when I thought that we could use them for something fun. My daughter and I love to paint without paint brushes. We have seen toothbrush painting before, but had never tried it. Today, seemed like as good a time as any. Since we’re on a rainbow kick right now, we decided to paint a rainbow with our toothbrushes.
If you are looking for a simple Valentine’s Day project that is also great for developing cutting skills, these easy scribble hearts are just the thing that you are looking for.
I am sure that I have said it to you before, but my daughter loves hearts. She is always cutting them out of construction paper and coloring them or drawing designs on them.

One of her latest creations was the inspiration for this simple Valentine’s craft.
I come from a family of artists. When I was a little girl, I used to love looking at my aunt’s and uncle’s artwork. My aunt used to make beautiful landscapes and scenes using nothing but grains and I loved them. My daughter and I have dabbled a little with grain crafts. We made colored oat fall trees and textured shape mountains.
You don’t have to be Irish, to want a little bit of the luck of the Irish on your side. If you are looking for a simple St. Patrick’s Day craft, these painted rock shamrocks are perfect. The best part is you can find most of your supplies in your backyard. All you need for these simple sham-rocks are rocks, sticks and some acrylic paints.
I used to love in old cartoons when the characters would fall in love and their eyes would bulge out of their heads filled with hearts. This would always crack me up. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought that these love goggles would be a quick and fun project.
My daughter has had a lot of questions about leprechauns. “Are they like an elf?” “Where do they live?” “Do they live in gingerbread houses?” These are just a few of the questions that I have received from my little girl in recent weeks. We looked up some pictures of leprechauns and where they live. “Mama, the leprechaun’s house looks like my fairy door.” Leprechauns and their homes are indeed enchanting and magical just like the fairies that my daughter loves so much.

Because of all of this, I thought that making a leprechaun door would be fun for us to do.
Roses are red, violets are blue, we love yarn and pipe cleaners too. If you’re looking for the perfect craft for the spring, Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, look no further. These coiled roses are great for developing fine motor skills as well.
It is true. My daughter and I both love working with yarn and with pipe cleaners. Yarn wrapping activities are a favorite of ours. My daughter also loves threading buttons and beads on pipe cleaners. These are wonderful for building her fine motor skills and they make some fun crafts. A new favorite of ours is coiling yarn and pipe cleaners for craft projects. At first, the yarn was too tricky for my daughter’s little hands, so she would coil with pipe cleaners instead. Now she can easily work with both. To get ready for Valentine’s Day, we made these coiled roses using both materials.
Love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and my daughter is loving all of the hearts. She has been making sweet Valentine’s every chance that she gets. She even learned to spell and write the word love on her own. It is wonderful to get love messages from my little girl now.
