This is a fun and educational activity that you can do to spend quality time with your child. This is a multi-media project broken down into 4 steps that help your child end up with one amazing masterpiece. Many busy mom’s have limited time each day with their little ones, so you can complete this project a little bit each day and have it done in time to celebrate ST. Patrick’s Day! Art with your child is a relaxing a fun way to make memories.
For the entire project you will need:
- 1 – heavy weight white paper (I used a piece of poster board)
- 2 – light weight white paper
- 1- black construction paper
- white glue
- glue stick
- green paint
- yellow paint
- paint brush
- clear plastic wrap
- markers, crayons & colored pencils in rainbow colors
- metallic sharpie or paint pen to write on the black paper

Such a great project, and I love Eric Carle! Bet it also sparks some interesting discussions to see what your kids think are like gold at the end of the rainbow!
I love how kindness is spread through this. Very fun, yet something that teaches a lesson. Lovely
What a cute idea! I love multimedia art for kids

This is a great St Patrick’s Day craft for the kiddos! My girls are totally into rainbows right now…nice timing with St Pat’s around the corner! lol
This is really cute and looks fun to make! We will try this for St. Patty’s day!
This is a super cute project. Great quote.
My favorite part is the shamrock.

Very cute craft idea!! I really like the steps involved in making this craft with kids!!
I love the Eric Carle inspired shamrock! We actually got to visit his museum and see how he makes his illustrations.
I love craft and paint activities that I can do with the kids. I’m so excited to get to that point to be able to do that with mine 🙂 Thanks for sharing this project with us.
