DIY Leprechaun Beard

Happy St. Patty’s Day! Well, almost. But it might as well be since today is the big Dallas celebration. We get to celebrate twice, here.

I’ve been trying to explain St. Patrick’s Day on a three-year-old level, which as it turns out, is pretty hard to do. (Really, you try explaining Leprechauns to a toddler without making them sound scary.)

So to have some fun with it, we made this quick little Leprechaun beard. We used craft sticks (got ours at Michaels) and regular construction paper, because that’s what we had on hand. You could use cardstock, felt, or even get something laminated.

I free-handed a beard with sideburns (you can use my drawing as a template, or draw your own to-size) and cut it out of burnt orange paper. Then we simply attached the craft stick with durable tape, and we were ready for goofy fun. You’ll want your camera ready, for sure.

We’ve got more celebrations in store for Monday, but this was a great little start. At least, Isaiah thought so. ;)

Here’s to a luck-filled weekend!
