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 your kids are Trolls fan, you have to try this cute and funny paper plate craft inspired by Cloud Guy.

We bought the movie Trolls last week. Since we bought it, we have watched it three or four times. My daughter loves those adorable Trolls, but our favorite character is by far the cloud. His part is a small one, but it is memorable.  She loves him so much, that a Cloud Guy craft was a must.

Wood Slab Leprechaun House

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. Wood Slab Leprechaun house and door.
