Kirkwood Library’s Kids Activity of the Day: Search for a Four Leaf Clover

Clover is growing in most yards and parks right now.  Look at the grass and you will find areas where clover is growing. Clover looks like this. 

Each stem has 3 leaves.  If you look and search through the clover you will sometimes find a stem with 4 leaves.  This is a 4 leaf clover.  Most patches of clover have a couple of 4 leaf clovers. If you find one of these it is believed it will bring you good luck.  Pick the 4 leaf clover and keep it in your room or give it to someone special.
