Movable St. Patrick’s Day Craft Printable
Okay, I know. St. Patrick’s Day isn’t always the first thought that comes to mind when you think of your favorite holidays. And while it’s not at the top of the list when my kids are asked what their favorite holidays are, we do still have a lot of fun with St. Patrick’s Day at our house.
Each year, in the wee-hours of the morning, the leprechauns visit our house. They leave destruction in their path, which is to say they sometimes move furniture around a little bit, throw green streamers around the house, and glitter the area with confetti. The younger kids love it! And it doesn’t hurt that there is always a few gold coins (or Hershey Kisses) to be found among the mess along with something green they can wear for the day, whether it be a green necklace, scrunchie, stickers, etc.
And of course, we always try to do some St. Patrick’s Day crafts and activities on and around the holiday as well. These moveable Leprechauns have been a favorite and the kids ask to make them again each year.
This free printable comes with two options, a blank template or a colored template. Use the colored template for a quick and easy, cut and assemble craft, or use the blank template to get a little more creative, using colored pencils, crayons, markers, or even glitter to customize your leprechaun.
To get started, choose your template version from the links in the above paragraph and print it out.
I recommend printing your template onto heavy weighted or cardstock paper. And if you’re using the coloring page version, you’ll want to color in your leprechaun before cutting. Using scissors, carefully cut out your leprechaun parts.
Using Brass Plated Paper Fasteners position the arms, legs and feet on the Leprechaun body and attach by punching holes and inserting the fasteners.
And that’s it. You’re leprechaun is done! This craft makes for a great classroom activity too. Just be aware that younger hands may need a little help with the brass fasteners.
If you’re looking for another version of the moveable leprechaun craft, grab this printable at the Learning English-ESL.
