Lucky Leprechaun Snack Hat

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ☘️ We love holidays here and any chance to make fun crafts and snacks. Today it’s all about leprechauns and everything green.

If your children are anything like ours, they like to snack. It seems as if they always need a snack. So, while I do have fun plans for meals today, the idea of perpetual snacks led the way for idea of this craft. This leprechaun hat is not only an adorable craft, but a functional snack cup. Grab a cup of coffee & let’s get crafty.

  • 1 Sheet of black construction paper

  • 1 Sheet of green construction paper

  • 1 Sheet of yellow construction paper

  • 1 Green pipe cleaner

  2. Cut the 4” circle out of the green craft paper.

  5. Cut the long strip out of black construction paper. Note, if you aren't using the template, you'll need to cut an irregular rectangle. A straight line does not match up to the curved surface of a cup.
