My Mom really loves 4 leaf clovers. She used to "sell" them to a neighbor lady when she was little. She'd earn a penny for any genuine 4 leaf clover that was given to the neighbor, and the neighbor stuffed her bible with 4 leaf clovers.
My mom had 4 kids, and I have 4 kids. My mom told me once that each leaf of a lucky 4 leaf represented one of her kids. I thought it would be cute to have each of my kids hold a green heart shape and have them form a 4 leaf clover with them.
If you want to make one:
cut heart shapes out of green construction paper
hold them together to form a clover shape
take a photo
upload to a site like Picnik and edit
You don't have to have 4 kids: have one kid hold 2, or include yourself or the dog
it's fun and easy!
I plan to make these into cards or postcards to mail our family.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
