    Glittery Shamrock Magnet    
    Use this festive magnet to display your child's artwork!   

    You'll need...
    Glittery Shamrock Magnet

    - 3 or 4 wooden hearts
    - Green acrylic paint
    - Craft glue
    - Green glitter
    - Magnet (available at craft stores)
    - Paint brush or cotton swab  

    To make...

  • 1. Start out by painting one side and the edges of all 3 or 4 hearts. Let the paint dry.

  • 2. Glue the edges of all 3 or 4 hearts together to form a shamrock shape. Allow the glue dry.

  • 3. Use a cotton swab or old paint brush to brush the top of the shamrock with a thin layer of glue. Sprinkle some green glitter onto the wet glue. Let the glue dry and then tap off any extra glitter.  
    4. Glue a magnet to the back of your shamrock, let the glue dry and display it with pride!

    I guess it has been a while :) Nothing interesting here, just a new site at Learn and Grow Together, and enjoying my role as Hospitality Manager for Saratoga County Mommies. We have a ton of events planned for our group. I love being a part of this wonderful mommies community!

    I was given the OK to take over the SCM Twitter Account, so if you are on Twitter, come follow us!!! And don't forget to visit our Facebook Page!

    I will be posting info for our big quarterly fundraiser soon! And, hopefully, we will have a SCM blog up as well.

    I also got accepted as a member of The Mommies Network Peer Review Panel. We are just setting things up now, and I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful National organization :)


    Nothing else to post about now...but wanted to pass this along...kind of explains itself! Click on the graphic, and it should take you to You Tube!
