Leprechaun Craft

Happy St. Patricks Weeks to you all - for those of you without kids or with kids to little you will soon realize that when there is a holiday it lasts at least a week in the way of crafts and explanations go!

We have three crafts and a science experiment planned for this week (wish us luck)!

After explaining what leprechauns are (to a 3 almost 4 year old) we made this craft.  And unfortunately I deleted half of the pictures of us making it on accident so all you have is the completed project!

The idea came from here:  http://www.busybeekidscrafts.com/Paper-Plate-Leprechaun.html


We painted the rim of a paper plate orange.
Cut out the hat and eyes from paper.
Big C drew the nose and mouth and cut them out!
Cut the edge of the plate to look like hair.
Glued everything together!
(Oh we also had a yarn piece to the back so we can hang it as a decoration for years to come)!

Just because it is so cute here is what else the girls have been up to:



A pillow pet cage out of Lego's.  So creative and they are getting quite advanced!

Thanks for reading,
