Leprechaun Popcorn Hat Kids Craft

 Leprechaun Popcorn Hat Kids Craft 
As I started to think about St. Patrick’s day, I knew I wanted to make a FUN kids craft for the holiday. And what’s more motivating than a craft combined with food?! Here’s an easy craft to do at home in honor of those cute little leprechauns, which can easily be followed up with a great movie night! And oh yeah, I paid $0! Here’s how:

What you will need:
  • (2) Pieces of Green Construction Paper
  • (1) Piece of Yellow Construction Paper
  • (1) Piece of Black Construction Paper
  • Tape/Glue
  • Scissors
  • (1) Small Paper Plate (size of a dessert plate)
  • POPCORN – A very important need :)


1. Using the small paper plate as your guide, trace a circle around 1 piece of green construction paper. This will be your hat base.

2. Cut the 2nd piece of green construction paper in half lengthwise.

3. Cut a long lengthwise strip out of the black construction paper, the same length as your hat. Glue/Tape to the bottom of your green strip. The black will be the belt around your hat.

4. Cut a small square out of the yellow construction paper. Place in the center of your long black strip (aka the buckle on your hat)

5. Now you’re ready to build the hat! Bring the two long ends of the green construction paper together (forming a ring) and tape the edges closed. This will be the top hat part.

6. Using scraps of paper, cut a few small rectangles. Attach to the inside of your hat. Then glue/tape to the circular base of the hat. This will keep the hat together (and the popcorn inside).

WOOT! Hat is done! You can use the small plate underneath to keep your hat steady while you fill with delicious popcorn. FUN for the kids and a delicious way to enjoy the holiday!
