My little Leprechauns had another day out of school today due to snow. We are tired of making hearts and things for Valentine’s Day so we decided to dive headfirst (or handfirst) into St. Patrick’s Day with Leprechaun Handprints.
To start we dipped a hand in paint.
After making sure it was well covered we placed the hand in the middle of the paper to make the handprint.
While the handprint dried we thought it would be a good idea to make his top hat!
Pro tip: sticking out your tongue makes it easier to cut out your hat.
Next we dipped a thumb in green paint to make Shamrocks around the edge!
To do this you gently place the thumb down and then turn the paper to make 4 leaves of the clover.
We made several clovers around the edge of our paper.
We wanted to use our fingers as much as we could with this project so we traced
the tip of our little finger for the eyes and the thumb for the mouth.
Glue the eyes and mouth to your handprint and then your hat.
Use a marker to draw in the stem of your clovers.
We love our Leprechaun Handprint and Thumbprint Clovers!
The boys had fun making them and I added the year to the back so when
St. Patrick’s Day is over I can put it away forever.

That is super cute! My youngest would love do this.
It was a lot of fun!
Cuteness! And great photos AND pictures. I like all the bright colors.
Very cute idea. I have to try this with my daughter.
Very creative out of school activity for your kiddo! Makes it worth while!
Great idea! I’ll need to try this with my munchkin. Good head start to St. Patricks Day! =)
I love this! What an awesome idea!
That is fun! I’m going to share this with my daughter’s preschool. They’d have a blast with this project.
This is CUTE! While I was reading I was trying to picture how this would come together and it’s so much cuter than I thought!
Ha! When we were making it I was wondering how it was going to turn out, lol
Awww!! That is so fun! My kids LOVE painting with fingers and hands. I pinned this so we can make it! Thank you!
We are making another set to take to Grandma! 🙂
I love that! Definitely gonna make some this week.
This is absolutely adorable! I think we’ll have a big leprechaun with my older kids, but my daughter would love this activity.
Oh that turned out super cute, thanks for the idea!
That’s a really cute idea! When my kids were little, if it had their handprint or fingerprint in their artwork, it went into the keeper pile no matter what!
I’m with you! I just can’t throw those away no matter how many we do. 🙂
Those are super cute! I think this is something that not only my 8 year old could have fun with, but especially the two year old! Definitely putting this one on our crafts calender for March!
What a great way to get ready for March. Top of the Mornin’ leprechaun!
What a brilliant idea – my kiddos would LOVE that!
These are so cute! I love homemade artsy crafts like this.

My son frequently does the tongue thing also! Super fun idea!
What a cute and fun idea for the little ones! Adorable.
This just couldn’t be a cuter project. Both the leprechaun and clovers make me smile!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!! We live so far away from family and they really enjoy getting little hand made crafts like this. I am book marking this one for us to make and send to the family :-).
This is so cute!
What an amazing way to celebrate St. Patricks day and have fun together.
Super adorable. I love hand made stuff like this by my kids. I will pass this along to my son’s class, he is in a special needs class and LOVE ideas like this. Thanks for sharing.
