Blarney Stones and lucky wishes, St. Patrick’s Day is just such silly fun. I never miss the chance in my classroom to celebrate this magic-infused holiday because it’s such a fantastic way to learn about the amazing Irish culture. Take advantage of the holiday at home as well by putting on some green and making new memories with your kids. No need for a four-leaf clover to strike up some good ideas. Rather, these leprechaun crafts will certainly help you find the pot at the end of rainbow.
This Crazy Legs Leprechaun is definitely ready for some Irish jigging! Kids can personalize their own by drawing on a unique face and cutting the hair as they’d like.
Green might be the color of the day, but this funny leprechaun’s red beard is the star of the show for this leprechaun craft. Use googly eyes and other stickers to personalize the face and hat.
This paper plate leprechaun is a shamROCKIN’ idea! Paint a red-orange beard around the outside of a paper plate and adorn his head with a construction paper hat.
Cap off a day of fun this March the 17th with a craft dedicated to the leprechaun’s most iconic accessory. These leprechaun hats are made with craft sticks, paper, and paint or marker.
Little Patrick O’Puppet is just begging to get into all kinds of good old Irish mischief. Use popsicle sticks and craft paper or felt to put on a most lucky puppet play.
This leprechaun mask will have everyone feeling the Luck of the Irish as they parade around as leprechauns themselves. Maybe we’ll find a pot of gold while we’re at it!
Puffy Paint Leprechaun
There’s no blarney around here when it comes to this fun puffy paint project! Use shaving cream and liquid glue to give Wee Willy Leprechaun a super fun puffy red beard.
Toilet Paper Tube
It’s easy being green when you’re this cute and oh-so-easy to make! Simply decorate a toilet paper tube with construction paper, an orange pipe cleaner, and a bit of gold glitter.
Pot Jar of Gold
Who needs a pot of gold when you can make this cute leprechaun jar of gold!? Use felt, ribbon, googly eyes, and buttons to decorate a mason jar before filling with gold candies.
