Sham"rocks"

A fun easy family craft for St. Patrick's Day.

Get Painting

Paint each rock green. Allow the rocks to dry completely, then flip them over and paint the backs.

Make the Shamrock

With gold paint, start with two adjacent circles and then add another circle on the top and one on the bottom. Be sure all four circles are joined together and then add a stem.

Hide and Seek

Once your painted stones are completely dry, bring them outside and hide them throughout the garden.
