Leprechauns

We are finally starting to work on some St. Patrick's Day decorations for around the house. My favorite color is green, so these projects are perfect;0) Today we made Leprechauns out of toilet paper tubes.

1. Paint a toilet paper tube green.


2. When it dries, trace the end of it onto green paper.


3. Make a bigger circle around the area you traced and then cut it out to form a doughnut shape.


4. Slide the circle over the top of the toilet paper tube to create a hat.


5. Paint an oval for the face, just below the hat.


6. Glue on some pieces of yarn to form a beard.


7. Add some arms cut from construction paper.


8. Draw a face on and you have yourself a "wee little Leprechaun"!


I posted the pictures of mine because the girls used so much green paint that they will probably take a day to dry so they can finish them.

  7. This is the cutest and I love how it uses a toilet paper roll!

    Have I asked you yet if you'd be willing to let us feature you on ABC and 123? You've probably seen the button on my blog Katie's Nesting Spot, I know you've been over:)

    We'd use a picture - without your kiddo's face in it, short description, and direct link back with your name and blog included. Cause there is a whole laundry list of posts I want to include!

    I wish my kid could've had you for a preschool teacher. We doing the rounds and even thought I taught K I am still so confused!
