Leprechaun Treat Box Craft Materials
Steps to Create Your Leprechaun Treat Box Craft
Step 1 Download and print My Pre-K Box Leprechaun Treat Box. It is a free PDF printable which includes a black and white and colored version. Print it on card stock to make the box more sturdy.
Step 2 Cut along the outline of each part of the Leprechaun Treat Box. Do not cut the dashed lines inside the drawings. You should have six parts after completing this step: the body of the box, the leprechaun’s hat, face, two pieces of curly beard, and a shamrock.
Step 3 Now, follow the outline and gently fold the parts with dashed lines.
Step 4 Get the largest cutout among the six parts. Follow the fold and put it together inwards, then glue the sides. Now you have a box!
Step 5 Glue the leprechaun’s beard on the left and right side, near the front side, then its face in the front of the box.
Step 6 Secure the hat at the top, back part of the box. Lastly, decorate it with the shamrock.
The Leprechaun Treat Box is now complete! Fill it with yummy treats like gold chocolate coins, cookies, candies, and rice crispies. You can share it with other kids in the neighborhood too! But don’t forget to leave some for the leprechauns!
Learning while having fun making a Leprechaun Treat Box!
Though this craft activity is so simple, it helps in developing our preschoolers’ fine motor skills through cutting, folding, and gluing together the parts of the Leprechaun Treat Box. It also enhances their creativity by adding designs into it. You can do storytelling about leprechauns and St. Patrick’s day while making this craft too, which helps with the kids’ listening skills and critical thinking. It also makes a super fun tradition.
