Bell Peppers are pretty neat for creating shamrocks!
This classic of an activity is a fun one and we enjoyed it very much!
If you’ve bell peppers that are a little over their prime (not old), why not use them in a fun St. Patricks Day craft for kids?
We created a simple and easy bell pepper art setup that was so fun!
This bell stamp activity was neat because it created a little shamrock with the bell pepper.
Now, a large bell pepper is not needed. In fact, a mini bell pepper will work just fine but I’ve found that the large bell pepper can be held a lot better for little hands.
I’ll be sharing below how easy and simple this bell pepper coloring page was to do and how you can go about it as well!

How to setup Bell Pepper Shamrock Craft
Here are the steps I took to set this up on our table for some St. Patricks Day arts and crafts fun:
I made sure to cut the bottom of the bell pepper.
Remove the seeds if needed so that the bottom is the only part that is used.
On a paper plate, add a bit of green washable kids paint.
Then, swirl the bell pepper bottom onto the paint.
Stamp the bell pepper onto the sheet of cardstock paper.
Boom! You’ve a simple and easy shamrock craft made easy!
This simple shamrock craft is so much fun!
Isn’t it so neat how the bottom of the bell pepper could look like a shamrock?
That is really cool!

Bell Pepper Shamrock Craft for Preschool
Preschoolers can stamp the bell peppers and count them stamps they made for a fun and easy counting activity.
Talking about the color green and the holiday, St. Patricks Day, is another fun way to go about learning about the holiday and its color.
If you have a bit of gold or yellow washable kids paint, add that right in!
Gold, green, light green and orange are wonderful colors that celebrate and talk about this holiday!
Another fun craft and activity is to write out your LO’s name on a poster board making sure they are spaced out a bit.
Then, stamp the painted bell pepper onto each letter, sounding out each letter and learning about your LO’s name.
This is a wonderful way to learn about name recognition and letter recognition for preschoolers!
