St. Patrick’s Day Pebbles 

These are great for decorating the house. All you have to do is collect some pebbles and paint or draw (with markers – such as Sharpies) your St Patrick’s Day designs.


St. Patrick’s Day Popcorn Hat

Need a cool holder for your popcorn when watching a movie?

To make this popcorn holder you will need: Green and black card Gold/silver pipe cleaner Tape/glue Scissors Small paper plate Popcorn (very important!)

1. Using a paper plate, trace a circle around one piece of green paper.

2. Cut another piece of green paper in half, lengthways.

3. Cut a long strip of black paper. Glue/tape to the bottom of your green strip.

4. Bend a pipe cleaner into a square. Place it in the centre of a long black strip (aka the buckle of your hat).

5. Bring the two long ends of the green card together. Tape the edges closed and glue/tape to the circular base of the hat.

6. Fill with popcorn.
