Saint Patricks Day Lucky Guess Clover
March 14th, 2012 by Craftylocks


These are lots of fun! If you have not done this paper craft with your children before, this Saint Patrick’s Day craft is a great excuse.

I don’t know what they are called, but I love this idea to use them for Saint Patrick’s Day as a lucky four leaf clover.

Start with a square piece of paper.

Fold it in half and open it out.

Fold it in half again the other way and open it out again.

Fold the corners in to the corners into the center.

Turn it over.

Fold the corners into the center again.

Fold it in half.

Carefully pull out the corners with your fingers pushed into the fold.

Use your fingers to open and shut the center.

Write some words to read around on the outside.

Write some numbers on the center.

And of course, write something on the inside flaps that you open out.

We have written lots of ‘lucky’ things just for Saint Patrick’s Day.

To play it, someone chooses a word which the holder of the ‘clover’ spells out as they open and close the ‘clover’, alternating which center numbers they display. Then the chooser selects a number which is counted out as the holder of the ‘clover’ again opens and closes the ‘clover’. Then finally a number is chosen again and this time the flap is opened and the ‘luck’ is read out.

When I was taking children for Mothers Day in our Church, I copied your two hands joined by a zig-zag and words ‘I Love You’. This craft was very popular. Thank you. Kath
