When I was teaching in the elementary classroom, I saw so many fun ideas for leprechaun crafts and fun leprechaun tricks. However, I never saw anything done around actually building a leprechaun. So, I created this leprechaun popsicle stick craft just for kids who want to express their creativity by designing their very own leprechaun.
This leprechaun popsicle stick craft doesn’t require too many supplies. Plus, if you’ve done one of my other popsicle stick crafts then your kids will be ready to get going on their craft because they’re on their way to being popsicle stick craft experts by now.
- Regular size popsicle sticks
- Small popsicle sticks
- Paint & Paint Brushes
- Black Marker
- Craft Eyes
- Pipe Cleaners
- Hot Glue
- Other Assorted Craft Decoration, If Desired
Evenly line up 7 regular size popsicle sticks.
Repeat this step on the other end as well.
Flip the newly made board over and run an angled line of hot glue near the top of the board and apply a regular size stick at an angle to form the brim of the hat.
Use hot glue to attach the eyes just below the brim of the hat
With the black marker, draw on the nose & mouth.
Use a paint brush to lightly tap on hair and beard, and let dry.
Your Leprechaun is now complete!
