I’m Lucky Because… {St. Patrick’s Day Craft}

Since St. Patrick’s Day is just a week away, I though what better time to find out what my son feels lucky to have or do.  I’m not sure about any of your children, but I know that mine only talks when he wants to talk.  What better way is their to get him to open up than helping him have fun while he does it.  Here’s what you need:

  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Something to write with
  • Heart shape tracer or cookie cutter
  • Construction paper (green and any other color you choose)

On the green construction paper, trace and cut four heart shapes with the cookie cutter, if you want to add a stem you can do so with the green paper as well.  Glue the four heart shapes on the alternate piece of paper, forming them into a four leaf clover.  If your child cannot print yet you can do this part for them – on each clover get them to write down the different reasons that they are lucky. 

I am lucky because…  
I love you.
I go to school.
You love me.
Uncle plays with me. 
Voila, you have a fun and easy craft, that helps your little one open up to you and makes you realize all of the things in life that you are lucky for.
