Lets start with a craft tutorial and free printable from MollyMoo

A right-oul game of “Shenanigans”

it’s not as easy as it looks :)

First… just download my leprechaun face template here

Colouring Option
– have your little(s) colour in the head
– cut it out and glue onto some cardboard
– cut the cardboard around the outer shape and cut out the face area and extend the cardboard down from the centre of the beard to create the handle
Painting Option
Use the download as a template for cutting the shape of of cardboard, extending the cardboard down from the center of the beard to create the handle

Let the little(s) off the paint and paintbrush to create their mischievous leprechaun

Attaching the Gold Coin
I have included the coin on the downloadable template but you can just as easy use any small circular container or bottle top to cut the coin out of cardboard, paint gold, and when dry punch a hole through the coin and another hole through the top of the hat and link with a short length of thread.

Rules of the Game: there are no rules :)
Whoever gets five in a row get’s a treat…… non nom


AND NOW for the round-up

An incredible collection of shamrock, rainbow and pot of gold crafts, sensory activities for preschoolers, cookies and treats, potato people, leprechaun traps, jewellery, goofy hats, racing leprechaun balloons, and a fun ‘green water’ science activity.  Have fun :)
