The Search for a Four Leaf Clover
One could spend hours looking for a four leaf clover and never find one. My daughter and I sure did!
After several afternoons with no luck, pun intended, we came up with a new plan. We decided to make our own luck.
We decided to collect some clover to bring home and make our own lucky four-leaf clover nature collage, and now you can too!

Four-Leaf Clover Nature Collage Supplies
In order to do this art project, you will need to go on a nature hunt for clover. Finding 3 leaf clover is a lot easier than finding a four-leaf clover.
Go ahead and spend some time looking for a four-leaf clover while you’re at it… Who knows, you just might find one! The kids love looking and can spend hours looking for them. Mine sure does!
If you are lucky enough, pun intended once again, to have clover growing nearby, send the kids out searching for four-leaf clovers. It will get them outside studying nature and burning energy, so you can relax for a bit.

1. Go on a nature hunt in search of clover. Go ahead… spend some time looking for a lucky four leaf clover. You just may find one!
2. Draw your own four-leaf clover or find and download four-leaf clover clip art.
3. Invite children to cut clover leaves and glue them onto the printable to make their own lucky four leaf clover.
Lucky Four-Leaf Clover Nature Collage Process
My daughter loved this art project from start to finish. We had a blast hunting for four-leaf clovers together.
When we didn’t find any, I suggested that we make one. She was so excited she raced home with a handful of clover ready to go.
First, she noticed that each clover leaf looked like a heart as she placed one on each leaf of the four leaf clover.
She worked carefully to fill each petal of her lucky clover one by one.
She decided that the stems needed to be glued to the stem of her lucky clover–too cute!
