And the steps:

  1. Using a paintbrush, have your child completely paint their paper plate and irony color. Set aside to let it dry.
  2. If your child is old enough, have them help you cut up the orange tissue paper into 2×2″ squares. If they can’t use scissors, they can also tear it up with their hands.
  3. Now take your glue and add a good layer around the rim of the paper plate. Place the tissue paper on top of the glue. This is the Leprechaun’s bread/hair.
  4. While the tissue paper is drying, you can create the Leprechaun’s lucky hat. I just cut a hat shape out of green cardstock and glued a black band & gold buckle to it.
  5. To finish the craft – staple the hat to the Leprechaun’s head and add life by drawing on a face in the center of the plate. And you are done!
