St. Patrickís Day Craft  For Kids - Rainbow, Shamrock and Pot of Gold Paper Mobile

This is a bright and colorful decoration for celebrating St. Patrickís Day! This project is easy for school aged kids to make alone and even younger kids, with the help of supervision, will find it easy tearing and wadding the paper pieces to make this project.

If you decorate both sides of the project, it would look great hanging freely in a room or in a window!

2. From each piece of tissue paper, tear pieces out that are approximately 4 cm x 4 cm or 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches. It does not matter if the pieces are a little larger or longer. This is just an estimate. Wad each piece in a ball.
