A Fun St Patricks Day Kid Craft-Leprechaun Wands!

Slowly but surely I’m showing you different components from our St. Patricks themed Matilda Jane show. First it was the Rainbow Seeds, then the Lucky Charms in a Mason Jar with a Shamrock Spoon, and today I’m sharing a craft that the kids made…

I saw this idea over at Smart Schoolhouse, which quickly reminded me that I used to make these with my students when I taught first grade! I think St. Patrick’s Day was my favorite holiday when I was teaching. The leprechaun would visit every year! The students would arrive and the classroom would be a mess… chairs everywhere, green footprints, Irish music playing in the background, and a pot of gold at the end of the footprints. We would make these wands and then dance an Irish jig. It was a great time…so when I saw leprechaun wands on Smart Schoolhouse, it took me back to this time and I knew we had to make them.

Want to make one?

Materials:

Leprechaun Wand by Every Day is an Occasion

Steps:

1. Cut out your shamrock shape- I used a shamrock from the Silhouette store, but you can use any shamrock shape or you could even use a stencil

2. Emboss-I used my cuttlebug-you can skip this step too-they look cute even without being embossed

3. tape ribbon and straw to the back of the wand

4. Enjoy!

The kids liked making these and they even used the cuttlebug to make “bumps” on their wand! The embossing step was definitely my sons favorite! After everyone left he embossed like 5 shamrocks! So funny!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a super fun day!

    Very cute, Jill!! I just love seeing all the goodies from your trunk party — what fun you’ve been having!! 🙂 I’m actually excited about reading that YOU put green footprints around your classroom — I used to do the SAME THING!! LOL… I totally forgot about that… I think I might have to have the leprechauns visit here at home (even if the kiddos are away)… 🙂

    Thanks so much for decorating your celebrations at the Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge Blog!

    BIG HUGS,
