St Patrick's Day Craft


St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Craft

Top O’ The Mornin’ To Ya!


I was able to do this quick craft with my one year old and two year old sons.  They had a good time using a different tool to paint with!

Materials:

Canvas or plain paper

Googly eyes

All-purpose glue

Orange paint

Green and black construction paper

Sharpie

Fork

Creative child

I started by getting all of the supplies ready before showing my kids what we were doing. Whenever I do crafts with them, they will usually get ahead of me if I’m not prepared and the “fun” activity becomes stressful.

I cut out a hat from the green construction paper and a strip of black for the hat ribbon. I then gathered the googly eyes and set them out on their individual canvas.

I put glue on the green hat and black ribbon. I showed them wear it would look the best and let them put it where they wanted. I then put some glue on the googly eyes and again had the boys put them where they wanted.


Once we had assembled what was starting to look like a face, I gave them a fork and demonstrated dipping the fork in the orange paint and tapping it onto the canvas in order to make a beard for the leprechaun. I let them get carried away with the rest! Once they dried, I drew a little nose and a smile with a sharpie.



I think they turned out pretty cute!
