Make a Shamrock Paper Plate Clock for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is almost here! So it's 'TIME' to make a Shamrock Craft!




So in honor of this holiday let's make a paper plate shamrock clock with the kids and sneak in some math measurement lessons.



Materials
  • paper or thin plastic plate
  • shamrock sticky-back foam or felt stickers (can be found at crafts stores)
  • marker(s)
  • cardboard or foam to make clock hands
  • scissors
  • paper fastener
  • glitter glue (optional)


Directions
  • Adhere 12 shamrocks stickers around the clock.
  • Write in the numbers 1-12 in the appropriate spaces.
  • Draw and cut out 2 clock hands.
  • Insert the paper fastener through both clock hands then through the center of the plate.
  • Students can decorate their clocks with glitter glue or other materials, if desired.

Have fun combining a holiday and math!
