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.
