Step 2: Time for sponge painting an orange beard! Use any sponge you have handy and dip it into your orange paint. Glue your leprechaun’s face to the paper plate, then sponge paint all around your leprechaun’s face.

Step 3: Glue the ears and hat to the paper plate. Time for embellishments! I decided to add some glitter to my leprechaun’s beard. After all, they are magical beings! Be sure to use this time during the craft to talk about leprechauns! Leprechauns are small in size and prone to mischief. It is said that they inhabited the land of Ireland long before humans arrived. Leprechauns are known for their love of money. If you are kind to them they will be generous to you!
