- Time:1 hour
1Placemat: Mark a sheet of Green construction paper into 6 matching blocks using a straight edge and colored pencils. Using Scissors, cut out three White construction paper rectangles that are the same size as the six Green blocks. With glue sticks, attach the White pieces onto the Green construction paper to create an alternating Green and White pattern. On White construction paper, draw a shamrock to fit into one of your blocks. Cut it out and use it as a pattern to trace and cut out six more shamrocks. Use your imagination to design unique patterns for each of the seven shamrocks with your colored pencils. Use traditional Irish sayings or other symbols of Ireland, for example. Glue six of your finished shamrocks onto the placemat blocks. Tip: cover the placemat with clear plastic adhesive such as contact paper so it can be wiped clean after use.
2Napkin Holder: Cut a piece of recycled cardboard gift-wrap tube as tall as your finger. Decorate your napkin ring with markers. Glue the seventh shamrock to the front. Put a napkin and utensils inside.
