BelPepper_JAN_Micro_peppers_0009
An Activity for Preschoolers:

A colorful art activity to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

Before You Begin:

Slice bell peppers ahead of time so they’re ready for children to use. Some peppers have 3 lobes and some have 4. Use both.

Activity Goals:

To explore shapes such as clovers and shamrocks.
To create art using a unique object.
To become familiar with the colors associated with St. Patrick’s Day.

Furthermore:

Be aware that some agencies do not like to use food for art projects. Make sure to be conservative about using food. If there is a possibility that any children in your group come to school hungry, it is best practice to refrain from using food in a disposable manner.


Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Have each child dip the flat side of a bell pepper into paint then onto white paper.

STEP 2

Repeat until each child is happy with the number of shamrocks/clovers on their page.

STEP 3

Use glitter glue, sequins, pipe cleaners and other embellishments to finish off the art project.
