Leprechauns, shamrocks, and wee folk are popular elements of Ireland's delightful legends. Celebrate Irish literature with a stand-up Leprechaun!
During a unit of study on Ireland, invite students to research Irish legends and symbols. Look for leprechauns, wee folk, shamrocks, shillelaghs, and other traditional symbols of Ireland in books, poetry, and music. Read folk tales about leprechauns. Note the ways different artists show these fascinating characters.
Ask students what they think leprechauns look like. On a large piece of construction paper, students use their imaginations to draw a detailed leprechaun using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Suggest they color his clothing and features with Crayola Crayons. Add Crayola Glitter Glue to make the leprechaun's eyes and other elements sparkle. Dry.
Students cut out their leprechauns with Crayola Scissors. Trace around the outlines on cardboard. Cut it out. Attach the cardboard to the back of the drawing with Crayola No-Run School Glue for support.
On more cardboard, students draw a second pair of feet for their leprechauns. Color both sides. Cut a slit between the leprechaun's feet and slide the second pair of feet into the slit so he can stand upright.
On construction paper create a large shamrock. Cut it out and glue it to the front of the leprechaun.
