the little people

How to celebrate St Patrick’s Day?? Handprinting is always a good way to start…and how darn cute is this!! Over the next week I will add to this little resource of MollyMoo and found crafts, recipes and fun printables for Paddy’s Day. I promise they won’t all be messy!

Handprinting How To:
• gather together some coloured paper, paint, scissors and glue
• paint the palm brown and the lower arm green
• press onto the paper to make the print and let it dry
• cut out the paper shapes for the face and hat buckle and glue
• let the kids have fun decorating the faces :)
