St. Patrick’s Day Crafts (Origami and More)

Many people visiting this blog really seemed to enjoy the winter holiday hands on math and origami activities, so I decided to find some similar projects for St. Patrick’s Day and other upcoming holidays. Visit St. Patrick’s Day Origami and receive step-by-step instructions for making a four leaf clover. Geometry really comes alive as young students complete this activity. Once completed, you can hang the clover at work, in your room or use as a decoration.

Easily, make a shamrock box, by following the instructions at Shamrock Origami.

For additional St. Patrick’s Day projects for children and teens visit the just revised AMC Montessori Spring 1999/2008 Newsletter and scroll down until you see the St. Patrick’s Day lessons.
