Clover Leaf Lei Kids Craft

Today I’m sharing a quick and simple craft that’ll help get the kiddos in the St. Patrick’s day spirit! We’ve made these fun straw and paper leis before (see our valentines day and spring versions from the past) and the kids love to make them! They’re simple, use supplies you’re likely to have on hand, and well, they’re just so cute!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Clover Leaf Lei:
paper clovers
cut up straws
hole punch
Here’s how you’ll make it:

1. Cut out some clover leaves in varying colours and patterns from cardstock/construction paper.
I’ve created a template for the clover leaf I used and it can be downloaded here.

2. Punch a hole in the centre of each clover leaf. Depending on the width of your straws you might need to use a smaller than normal hole punch or poke your own holes so the straws don’t slip through.

3. Next cut a length of string or yarn and alternate stringing the paper clovers + straw pieces.

4. When its long enough, tie the ends of your string together and that’s it! So easy and definitely a crowd pleaser with the kids! Enjoy making your own Clover Leaf Leis!

    I absolutely love this! I can’t wait to make this with my daughter! I had a little trouble downloading the shamrock though. Any idea why?
