Print both pages of the template on two A4 construction papers.
Cut out the parts of page 1. Then trace the parts of the hat on green and black cardstocks using a pencil and cut them out. Color the small square yellow using a marker.
Similarly, cut out the parts of page 2, trace them on an A4 orange construction paper, and cut them out.
Get six jumbo popsicle sticks, and stick them together using hot glue. (Please note, hot glue should be used by grown-ups only).
If you do not want to use hot glue, you can use PVA glue or wood glue to stick the popsicle sticks together. But it may take longer for the popsicle sticks to stick together.
Make small cuts on the beard and eyebrows on one side using scissors. This is an excellent activity to work on kids’ scissor skills.
Apply glue on the other side and stick the beard on the leprechaun’s face. Make the cuts a bit messy by pressing them gently. This will give it slightly a 3d look.
Stick the green hat on the top and then stick the black rectangle above it. Now stick the yellow square on the black paper strip. Finally, stick the eyebrows, and eyes and draw a mouth for the leprechaun.
