Sticker Crafting- St Patty's Day

What better way to end the week than with a completely MESS FREE yet absolutely adorable craft?! Friday afternoon Maddie was feeling crafty and I was feeling exhausted. Instead of tossing the usual crayons and paper at her I grabbed a package of dot labels out of the craft closet and guided her in a super cute craft!

My first thought was just use the green labels and let Maddie go wild making shamrocks but then we decided to go a little further. We ended up using green and yellow dot labels, green and black construction paper, crayons and a glue stick.

While Maddie worked on making shamrocks I cut out a few pots out of black construction paper.

To keep things even less messy and Maddie on task (which is a major issue lately) I glued the pots onto the green construction paper. When I finished gluing I was able to sit back and let Maddie go wild. So simple, so clean and so entertaining for Maddie!

She decorated with shamrocks and filled the empty pots with gold!

Maddie finished up with crayons by adding rainbows to all of her pictures. A perfect mess free activity to end a very busy week!
