Grab that wrinkly pepper from the back of your produce drawer, round up the little leprechauns in your house and make these fun clover stampers! With St. Patrick’s day approaching, this activity is great to do as a family and will add some green to your house. So head to your kitchen–you should find everything you need right there!

Here is what you will need!

  • A green bell pepper (Look for one with three or four seams in it; this will ensure the 3 or 4 leaf clover design)
  • A knife
  • Green paint (Don’t have any? Just follow the simple directions for homemade paint here.)
  • Paper

Here is what you will do!

  • Using your knife, slice off the top half of the bell pepper. Clean any seeds away leaving the rim clean. The bottom portion will be your stamper. The top half can be your snack.
  • Apply your paint around the rim of the pepper, or pour paint into an old pie pan, perfect for dipping.
  • Press down firmly on your piece of paper, then add a stem. Presto!

    I was perusing the web, looking for great St. Patricks Day activities to share with the pediatric therapy professionals we serve, and found your shamrock pepper stamping  I was wondering if I could have permission to feature the photo on our Instagram feed.  
    As you may know, I am unable to create a clickable link to your post through Instagram but I would obviously credit your blog and  put a link to the specific page the post came from along with suggestion that they visit that page on your blog for directions and more pictures in the description if that works…
