Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day! Many of you will be celebrating the day with your kids at home since most schools in the United States and beyond are closed right now. Tonight, I want to share a simple but fun craft that will keep your kids busy for a little bit tomorrow!

Materials Used

  • Construction Paper (I used orange, green, black, yellow, and a light brown that my daughter picked from a pack of multicultural construction paper. )
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers/Pens/Crayons

To get ready for this activity, I cut out a hat from the green paper, an oval from the brown paper, a small rectangle from the black paper, and a slightly bigger rectangle from the yellow paper. Next, I traced my daughter’s hand onto orange paper folded into fours. I used two pieces of paper so that I’d have eight hand prints total. If your children can use scissors, you can just draw the shapes that need cut and let them do the cutting!

After all the cutting was done, I gave my daughter the oval and had her draw a face.

After the face was drawn, I helped my daughter glue on the hat. We used the yellow and black paper to make a buckle.

Finally, I flipped over our little leprechaun and I helped my daughter glue the hand prints on to the bottom of the oval. This is his beard.

This is our finished leprechaun!

Book Suggestions

Crafts and learning activities are even more fun when paired with a book! Since St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, I picked books that are available on Kindle!

Valentine’s Day Heart Emoji

Today, we made a simple and fun open ended Emoji craft that is perfect for Valentine’s Day. This craft is designed with preschool aged children in mind and can be done at home or a classroom setting!

Materials Used

  • Construction Paper (White, Black, Yellow, Red)
  • Glue
  • Scissors

I started by drawing a large circle on the yellow paper for my child to cut out. Next, I cut out a variety of shapes for the eyes and mouth. I wanted to give her choices when making her emoji. You could also ask your child which shapes they’d like before cutting. If you are doing this for Valentine’s Day, then you definitely want to include some hearts!

I helped my little one cut out the yellow circle and then had her glue it onto the white paper.

Next, I let her pick which parts she wanted to put on the Emoji and had her glue them on.

This craft only took about 15 minutes and the end result was super cute!
