What you need:
Green, black, and orange construction paper
Sparkly foam shamrocks
Glue stick and scissors
Cut out the center of the paper plate. While your doing that, have your preschooler cut the orange paper in strips. We like using the craft scissors with the zig zag edge. Cutting is so much more fun for some reason with these scissors!
Show your kids how to assemble the leprechaun. Toddlers can participate at this point.
Glue the hat into the top of the paper plate. Add the orange strips to the bottom to make the beard. And your done! I meant it when I said quick… it took 5 minutes total. I managed to get a few cute pictures before I totally lost their attention and the baby tried to eat the beard 😂
