I find that when I'm celebrating Catholic feast days with my children, they always love to make a craft. These shamrock rosaries are fun and easy to put together, and are an excellent opportunity to incorporate the faith. The best part is, it's easy and cleanup is a breeze.
- Start by stringing 10 beads onto your pipe cleaner.
- Then, shape your pipe cleaner into a simple shamrock, pinching the pipe cleaner between the leaves.
- Twist the shamrock closed, leaving a long stem at the bottom.
- Add one more bead, snip off the extra pipe cleaner from the bottom, and twist it around the stem to make a cross.
Wasn't that easy? Now you have your very own shamrock rosary for St. Patrick's Day!
