Shamrock Mess Free Painting Supplies
Some of the supplies we used in this specific mess free art activity are:
Zip lock bag (we used a large bag)
Shamrock outline (Here is a Free Shamrock Outline Printable)
I specifically made this mess free painting activity to work on color mixing (green and yellow) and for a simple St. Patricks Day theme for March.
Let’s get into how to go about putting this mess free paint activity together…
How to make an Easy Mess Free Painting
Here are the steps I took to put together this simple mess free painting:
On a cardstock paper, use the shamrock outline to draw out a shamrock using your sharpie marker.
Before cutting, insert the cardstock sheet into a large ziplock bag.
Add a few drops of green and yellow paint onto the drawn out shamrocks within the zip lock bag.
Seal it shut and tape it onto your LO’s playroom table.
Have fun and squish the paint around.
Talk about the colors, what colors both colors will mix into, the shamrock and St. Patricks Day all while squishing the sensory bag around.
Once complete, cut the edges of the zip lock bag and remove the cardstock sheet.
Leave out to dry on paper towel.
Once completely dry, cut out the shamrocks.
Voila! You’ve made a simple mess free painting shamrock craft!
