More Ideas for St. Patrick's Day Crafting!

  1. Purchase oversized cardboard letters at your local craft story to spell "LUCKY". Glue pennies (heads side up, they're lucky pennies after all!) to the letters. You don't even needs to paint the letters! Garnish with St. Patrick's Day shamrock garland.

  2. Make leprechaun paper bag puppets! Use construction paper, googly eyes, and buttons to create a leprechaun out of a paper bag,, and then the kids can put on a puppet show!

  3. Make your own leprechaun beard! Freehand draw a large beard shape on construction paper, and include holes at each end on top so you can add elastic. On the front, cut strips of construction paper and curl them, gradually layering them for a really fun effect.
