Easy Crafts for Kids: Hand Print Leprechaun

Another one of those St. Patrick’s Day themed easy crafts for kids! This one’s a little messy — but the trade off is it doesn’t take too many supplies and it couldn’t be easier to produce. Remember tracing your hand to make a little turkey? It’s nothing like that! Except for the fact that their hands are the main part of this fun craft – but this isn’t some easy turkey trace, this is fun hand painting.


You’ll Need

  • Orange paint
  • Peach colored paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Paper
  • Green and black craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Glue

  • Sharpie or black marker
