St Patrick Day Kids Crafts

St Patrick Day kids crafts that will help you create your very own little leprechaun. No need to try ans chase and catch these sneaky little critters, we will just make our own!

A leprechaun is a mythical creature, some say. But today we make it a real critter by making our own little leprechaun craft!

These little fairies are very mischievous and tricky to catch. We would spend way to much time trying to catch a real one. 

It would be long past St Patricks Day before we came across a real live leprechaun.

So here's a way to make your own little leprechaun!

Your Own Little Leprechaun

Bring the luck of the Irish to your crafting area, and make these St Patrick Day Kids Crafts!

Craft Supplies:

  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Construction paper (green, yellow, black, peach, and orange)
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black marker

Step #1:

Cut out strips of green and peach to cover your leprechaun.

First add the peach strip in the center for his face.

There will be a small green strip for his hat. And a larger strip for his body.

Step #2:

Cut out a circle from green construction paper, that is larger than the toilet paper roll.

Now, cut out the center of the circle (to the size of the roll)

This way you can slid the circle around the top green strip for the brim of his hat.

Step #3:

Cut another strip from green paper for our leprechaun's arms. 

Glue this on the reverse side only, leaving his arms spread out.

Step #4:

Cut out two peach colored hands. 

Glue these to the ends of your arms.

Step #5:

Cut out a orange strip, about one inch wide. 

Measure where your face will be on your leprechaun. Make a beard shape at this point. 

Add wave cuts along the bottom for his hair and beard.

Glue the beard in place.

Step #6

Add your googly eyes.

Draw on a smile.

As well, add some buckles to his hat and body.

Brag away, you caught the mythical leprechaun!
