St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Paper Plate Mask
Materials needed to create your very own Paper Plate Leprechaun Mask:
- Paper plate
- Green, yellow, and black construction paper
- Orange paint
- Gold glitter
- Craft glue
Step One: Cut out a circle in the middle of the paper plate.
Step Two: Have your child paint the paper plate orange and allow to dry completely.
Step Three: Allow your paper plate to dry and being creating your leprechaun hat. If you have a younger child you can cut out the hat pieces for them, but if your child is ready to cut the pieces themselves go ahead and draw a small rectangle on a black construction paper, a hat from green construction paper, and a small square with the yellow paper. Allow your child to cut out the pieces for a great fine motor skills activity. For the gold buckle, help your child cut another square inside to create a thin buckle for your hat.
For some extra sparkle you can also add gold glitter to your leprechaun’s hat buckle.
Step Four: Glue the pieces together on the leprechaun hat and glue your hat to the mask.
Step Five: To create a fun bearded affect, cut small strips on the bottom of your painted paper plate.
Allow all your pieces to dry before using mask, especially glitter. Believe me, you do not want all that wet glitter on your child’s face. Yes, unfortunately we are speaking from experience! 🙂
To make your mask tie around your child’s head tie yarn on each side of the mask.
I think I might just found myself the CUTEST Lil’ Leprechaun!!
