It’s March and time to get your green on.  Here’s a treasure chest full of St. Patrick’s day craft ideas to make your St Patrick’s day decorating easy, fun, and festive.  

Shamrock Crayon Resist With A Twist

Shamrock crayon resist with a colorful salty twist is so fun.

We all love the crayon resist. It’s simple, fun, and yields great results.  Perfect of preschool and up. Traditionally students would take their shamrock and use a crayon to color and then get watercolor set out and paint over to make the crayon markings pop.

But here’s a little fun addition to your projects.  Use colored salt to add some more fun and “texture” to the project.

How do you make colored salt?

It’s really easy. Just follow these simple steps.

Vinegar, Liquid Watercolor

Step 1 Vinegar and liquid water color

Step one put a capful of vinegar and a dab of paint in a zip-top sandwich bag.  Squish it around.
