Shape leprechaun craft with curly beard

Sharing is caring!

We like shape crafts and try to make one for each holiday or season. Our shape Cat in the Hat has been such a popular classroom craft that we have decided to create a craft for St Patrick’s Day, too. This shape leprechaun craft is a perfect activity for a geometry unit. Kids will practice shapes and can name them while crafting.

Of course our shape leprechaun is also a fun craft to make at home with mom or dad. In case you prefer a non-shape leprechaun, you can take a look at our paper leprechaun craft or our entire St Patrick’s Day craft collection

How to make the paper leprechaun craft

 


The leprechaun template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOME CRAFTING

Print the home template, cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.

To make the shape leprechaun craft, you will need 1 white face, 2 orange eyebrows, 1 red nose, 1 green hat, 1 green hat brim, 1 black hat band, 1 yellow hat buckle and 10 orange beard strips.

Leprechaun head

Start by gluing the head on the middle of the gray cardstock paper.

Leprechaun hat brim

Glue the green hat brim on top of the head.

Leprechaun hat

Add the hat above the hat brim.
