Leprachaun Hats With Style

Our Pre-K class made a very basic craft, but WOW does it brighten up an area.

You will need:

green construction paper
strip of black construction paper
yellow shamrock
streamers

I don't have any patterns here, I took the picture when I stopped in, but forgot to bring materials home to show the steps.

Draw a leprechaun hat shape on green paper. Have the children cut it out. Add the black strip and yellow shamrock for detail. Finally glue some streamers to the bottom of the hat.

This is one easy way to liven up any area for St. Patrick's Day.

That is so cute. I am going to try this with my toddler and older son. It looks great to hang as a decoration too.

I am with everyone else, I love it. We just finished up our theme this week of Rainbows, I loved the classroom so colorful. Next week we are learning about Leaping Leprechauns, thanks for the idea:)

These are cute, we made similar ones and hung them from our ceiling. They do brighten up the place a lot.
