How to make the paper plate Leprechaun
1. Download and Print the Leprechaun Template. The cutting isn’t too complicated so preschoolers could even use this as scissor practice!
- Cut out the pieces of the Leprechaun.
Cut off the rounded sides of the paper plate so that the leprechaun’s face isn’t too round.
3. To create the Leprechaun, glue the pieces to the plate.
4. Allow to dry completely before playing or displaying.
- Optional Step– glue a craft stick to the back of the plate for a leprechaun paper plate puppet!
