I’m not sure how it’s already March but here we are, headed into my oldest daughter Lilly’s birthday month! We love March. Spring is on the horizon, we get to celebrate lots of family birthdays, and St. Patty’s day is thrown into the mix. I recently released my brand new Botanical Directed Drawing Pack (a printable pack of how to draw pages) and wanted to include how to draw a shamrock as a fun freebie!
This is how I teach my girls and my school kiddos to draw four leaf clovers aka shamrocks. I break it down into four easy steps just as I do in all of my previously released how to draw pages. Print them out, laminate them, use them at school or at home. They are great for teaching kids how to break down their drawings into simple shapes. So fun!
How to draw a shamrock- let’s get started!
This is one of those little doodles that you’ll start to draw all over the place. It’s so cute to see kids figure this one out and add them to their drawings. My Gracie girl is 7 and in first grade and these are her FAVORITE. Something about those four little heart shapes makes me smile! Try coloring them in with rainbow colors or a green gradient. Add them to a leprechaun’s hat or a St. Patty’s day card. Or just doodle it on a piece of paper!
Once you have the hang of how to draw a shamrock, try making them using watercolors too. Let the colors flow or keep it controlled. You’re the artist!
Another tip for using these how to draw pages is to print them at 50% size and use them on a mini clipboard. They can be a great restaurant occupier or travel activity!
I’d love to see your shamrocks; tag me on Instagram @sweetersidemom if you give this one a whirl.
