Kids think St. Patrick’s Day is a magical day where leprechauns come into your home and leave little goodies behind! At least my kids do… ?

Why not build on that enthusiasm by making this leprechaun headband craft?

It’s a simple headband craft for kids that will entertain your child and help them with fine motor skills.

We’re giving you a free printable template too! Just download it and make one of the two version available.

The first version is the craft version. With this one, kids cut out the pieces to their leprechaun and glue or tape them together to make their finished headband.

The second version is a black and white version. For this one, kids color in the headband with markers or crayons, then assemble it. It’s easier and works great for younger children or if you’re doing this in a large group, like a classroom.

Either way, the kids are going to have fun celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with this cute craft!
