clover cootie catcher

I’m having a blast with my newest freelance job, creating kid-centric crafts for Just Mommies. This month, a cootie catcher perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.

It is a throw back to our own grammar school days, plus when done in green and with a little rounding of the corners you are left with a very lucky paper clover. Write in four special treats and enjoy celebrating the holiday in whichever way your luck may lead!

PS. Last year, as one of my first projects shared online, I made shamrock cupcakes.



  1. OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is genius! What an adorable idea, and so simple to make. I’ve always been into cootie catchers:

  2. I miss those! We used to make those daily in junior high:)

  3. Cute idea!

  4. So cute! We had some friends who made personalized cootie catchers and used them as part of their wedding decor :)

    Have a great day!

    I love this! I’m a school teacher and will be making this with my fourth years. They’re going to love it!

    Thank you very, very much!
