Hole-Punch St. Patrick's Day Art - finished pot of gold and cloverIt's always exciting for children to try something different when creating art. Their eyes light up when they see new materials in the art center. And my students always really enjoyed using hole punches to make or accentuate their crafts. For St. Patrick's day, you can make a pot of gold, a four-leaf clover, or a rainbow. The hardest part is punching all the holes, but kids like doing that too! And all that punching helps to strengthen those little hand muscles. After that, each piece is easy to complete.


Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 3 (1 of each)


  • 1 3-hole puncher
  • construction paper (black, white, green, yellow, red, orange, blue, purple, and pink)
  • 1 glue stick
  • scissors
  • 1 marker, pen, or pencil

  5. Glue yellow punches along the top of the pot to represent gold. I felt that the pot of gold was too simple, so I glued on a small shamrock out of green punches.
