I have been itching for the end of February to roll around because I had this idea about a month ago to create an invitation to play station for my daughter with Play Dough for her to create her own Leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day. My son had a friend over this afternoon so my daughter was needing some special one-on-one attention to avoid ruining their playtime so it was the perfect opportunity to put my plan into action.
I loved how our little Leprechaun hats turned out, but if I had more prep time I would have used school glue instead of tape to secure them together so they looked cleaner. For play purposes, the tape worked good though. To make them I cut an empty toilet paper roll in half and covered it with green cardstock paper. Then I cut out two circles, one to cover the top of the hat, and a larger one for the brim of the hat. I used clear tape to secure them to the toilet paper roll. I wrapped some black electrician tape around the hat at the bottom and added a small shamrock sticker in the front to finish it.
Here is my three year old's creation. He turned out so cute!
