I noticed shamrocks growing in my yard, so thought I would share a few pics! I like the ones growing right next to the tire...the green against the black is beautiful!!!
This inspired Donovan (age 6), and I, to do some chalk paintings. You might think that long thing there might look like a crack, but no...that is some serious lightening that has helped to form our rainbow! Hehehe.
Here are a couple of close up's of our St. Patty's Day tree...the paper flower I made from a white coffee filter and green watercolor brushed on outer edges of the flower. We added birds (from the dollar store), a shamrock necklace Donovan brought home from school, a shamrock made of green yarn and gold glitter, a few love notes from Donovan, and some shamrock package wire wrap, some sprays of shamrock flowers (dollar store), plus the paper shamrock we made from a toilet paper roll. As time has gotten closer, we have added more and more (a lot of which has been sent home from school with the boy)! It has been fun to watch it all come together for him. Of course, our cute woven paper basket with rainbows, and filled with gold is sitting under the tree, too.
Here is the pic I printed out to use as our guide to draw our chalk Leprechaun!
