Leprechaun Beard

Leprechaun Beard Activity

Your child's painted handprint creates the beard of this adorable leprechaun.  Add a hat, and a painted face, and your child will have a lucky leprechaun to bring a smile to everyone celebrating St. Patrick's Day!

What You Need:

  • White watercolor paper
  • Tempera paint
  • Green and yellow construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Help your child paint their hand with orange paint, then press a handprint onto the top half of the watercolor paper.  Allow this to dry.
  2. While the beard is drying, have your child draw and cut out a large top hat on black paper for her leprechaun. 
  3. Have her draw and cut out a buckle from the yellow construction paper for the hat and adhere it in place.
  4. Flip the watercolor paper so the handprint has the fingers pointing toward the bottom of the paper.
  5. Have her glue her hat in place.
  6. She can then paint a circle for her leprechaun's face and add on a mouth and eyes.
  7. Encourage her to add on any other details she likes to complete her handprint leprechaun!
