It’s St. Patrick’s today and let’s celebrate by making a four leaf clover out of toilet paper roll ๐Ÿ™‚

Press and shape them until you get 4 heart rings

Paint the heart rings green

It can get pretty messy on the fingers ๐Ÿ™‚

Cut green crepe paper and paste onto a paper plate

Once the four heart rings dry, paste them onto the paper plate too.

Painting is so much fun. What do you do if you need to put down your brush for a moment while you take a break or two?

Don’t just put them on the table and risk them rolling off or anything similar to that. Cut an egg carton and use it as a brush holder. This way, your brush is kept in place until you are ready to resume your painting. Don’t even bother to paint or decorate the egg carton as after sometime, it will have its own unique mixture of colours ๐Ÿ˜€

Art time is so much fun. To prevent your clothes from paints, wear a smock or an apron.

On the other hand, you can turn an over-sized old tee into an art apron.

That way you can make as much mess as you like ๐Ÿ˜›
