Craft Idea- Leprechaun's Mask
Supplies: 1 each 8.5x11 green and orange piece of construction paper or card stock
stickers, stamps, gold glitter glue(optional)
gold metallic paper or foil (optional)
yarn or ribbon
scissors, hole punch, tape

1-Fold the green paper in half and cutting from the edge toward the fold, cut a basic hat shape. (see photo)
2-Decorate with shamrock stickers, stamps or swirls of gold glitter. Kids can also decorate by drawing any decorations they want.
Punch a hole on each side of the brim. You can add an extra piece of card stock in the back to prevent tearing. Cut some ribbon or string to tie through each hole.
3-Fold the orange paper in half and cut a U shape matching the same wide as the hat. Fringe and slightly curl the outer edge all the way around. (see photo)
4-Securely tape the orange beard to the back sides of the hat.

Now your little ones can dress up while they watch the parade go by!
