Shamrocks are such an iconic part of St. Patrick’s day, and I wanted to introduce my kids to shamrocks ahead of the holiday. We had done a fizzy paint activity for Valentine’s that they both enjoyed, so as one of our St. Patrick’s Day activities, I decided to bring the fizzy paint back with a St. Patrick’s Day twist! That is how our magic fizzing shamrocks activity was born!
Note: You can find this and other St. Patrick’s activities on my St. Patrick’s Day activities for kids page.
I prepared the following materials for this activity:
- Painting paper cut into a shamrock shape
- Green fizzy paint (see my Valentine’s heart fizzy painting post for info on how to make fizzy paint)
- A paint brush
- A small cup of vinegar
- A plastic pipette
