Leprechaun Minion Craft For Kids [Free Template]

If there’s one holiday that we always sort of skirt by each year, it’s St. Patricks’ Day.

We still don’t know why it’s a holiday, but we love celebrating and crafting so we made this leprechaun minion craft to share with you!

There’s nothing sillier than minions, except minions that you dress up to look like leprechauns.

Kids will have a blast making this or any of our other St. Patrick’s Day crafts.

It’s the perfect activity to do at home, daycare or in the classroom. And, with our free printable template, there’s no worry of having to draw out your own pieces.

The best thing about paper crafting is that all you really need is paper!

Because paper is the star of the show, we like to use bright, thick card stock if possible. If you’re doing this craft with a large group of kids and card stock isn’t in the budget feel free to substitute construction paper instead.

Besides paper all you’ll need is some markers, scissors, and glue!

Supplies

Directions

Download the leprechaun minion template, print and cut out the pieces.

Adapting This Craft For Young Kids

Because there are several small pieces in this craft, we’d say the recommended age range is somewhere around 6 and up.

If you’ll be doing this craft with younger kids, it’ll work perfectly fine as well. You’ll just need to have adult assistance with some parts of it.

When doing this paper craft with kids who can’t yet cut well, you’ll want to be sure to cut out all the template pieces ahead of time. Having all the parts laid out and ready to go will be so helpful!

If you’d like, you can even get the ball rolling by creating the eye/goggle combo and gluing the arms in place before bringing them out for the children.

No matter what age range of kids you do this craft with, we’re certain they’ll love crafting and having this leprechaun minion to show off!
