St. Patrick’s Day Craft Leprechaun Paper Plate Mask
Creating fun activities and crafts during the seasons is a great way to make learning fun for kids. I always love creating fun crafts that are attached to any holiday or seasonal celebration.
Materials needed to create your very own St. Patrick’s Day Craft:
- Paper plate
- Green, yellow, and black construction paper
- Orange paint
- Gold glitter
- Craft glue
- Cut out a circle in the middle of the paper plate.
- Have your child paint the paper plate orange and allow to dry completely.
- 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 little 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.
- Glue the pieces together on the leprechaun hat and glue your hat to the mask.
- To create a fun bearded effect, cut small strips on the bottom of your painted paper plate.
- Allow all your pieces to dry before using the 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!!
