St. Patrick's Day Craft: Bell Pepper Shamrocks

For our weekend painting project, my lil gal & I decided to get a head start on St. Patrick's Day decorations! Rather than use stamps or stencils, we cut up a bell pepper.



What you'll need:
  • Green Paint
  • Paper
  • Bell pepper (green would have been an obvious choice, but all we had were orange & yellow peppers)

Slice a bell pepper widthwise and it will reveal a shamrock or if you are extra lucky a four-leaf clover shape. Dip your peppers in the green paint and stamp away!


Fun & educational!
