Now, let’s give our little green friend some character by creating a nose. Grab a dark green marker and draw a small oval just above Baby Yoda’s mouth.

Show your child how to glue the pink inner ears to the lower portion of the outer ears. Together, carefully trim off any excess paper.

With a black marker, help your child make a thick hat band in the middle of the leprechaun hat. Then, guide them to draw a black square in the middle of the buckle. Once that’s done, show them how to glue the buckle to the middle of the hat band.

Now, onto Yoda’s body! Show your little one how to glue the coat fluff to the top of the coat. They get to decide just how fluffy and snug Yoda’s coat should be.
