We are a week away from St. Patrick’s Day! This leprechaun hat is super easy and can be done with materials most of you will already have at home! This craft is perfect for kids between the ages of two and six!
- Green Construction Paper
- Black Construction Paper
- Yellow Construction Paper
- White or Other Light Color Construction Paper
I started by cutting the green paper in half. Next, I helped my daughter cut one half of the green paper into long strips and the other half into shorter, thicker strips. Next, I cut out a black rectangle and a yellow rectangle that was slightly bigger than the black rectangle. If your child is not comfortable with scissors at all, you can cut the strips. If they are really good with scissors, try letting them cut out the rectangles as well.
After all the cutting was done, we started to glue! We started with the longer rectangles. We used these as the rim of the hat. After that, I helped her glue on the shorter rectangles. The last things to get glued on were the two rectangles.
The finished product is a cute little leprechaun hat!
