Toilet Paper Roll Leprechauns
This Leprechaun Shelf Sitter was sitting on a shelf in the thrift store, waiting for me to take him home last week. Which I did, but it took me until today to get the directions written out.
He’s dressed in the green, of course – green felt, which means there’s a certain amount of measuring and cutting to be done to make this project. For this reason, I think it would be best for a child who has some experience with these skills. A low-temperature glue gun would also be a useful tool during construction.Younger children, however, shouldn’t feel left out. There are lots of options for them also, including this Paper Toilet Roll Leprechaun from Moments of MommyHood.
The little girl painting the toilet roll with such concentration is having lots of creative fun. Step-by-step photos make this a very easy craft to follow and teach your children.Isn’t this guy cute?
He’s the Wee Leprechaun from FamilyFun, also made from a toilet roll tube.
As well as written directions, you’ll find a handy video on their site to show what supplies you need and exactly how to make him.Rounding out our little group of St. Patrick’s Day leprechauns is this Toilet Paper Roll Leprechaun Kid’s Craft from MeloMomma.
I like this one because it’s a simple craft, put together from construction paper. I especially like the Dr. Seuss style tall hat which adds just the right touch of whimsy.
