The kids then removed the wax paper and peeled back the clover petals to reveal the shamrock prints!

St. Patrick's day is fast approaching so over the weekend the kids and I made some cards to send to loved ones near and far, Irish and not! We needed to use supplies from around the house so I decided to take a few clovers from the Oxalis plant which has served as our kitchen centerpiece this month. The kids arranged the petals (face up) on card stock, which was placed on top of a thick book which served as our work surface. We laid wax paper over the paper and petals then the older boys took turns hammering the leaves all the way to to the edge to ensure that the green pigment from the petals fully transferred onto the card stock.
