Handprint Rainbow and Leprechaun

Since my kids love all things rainbow, we decided to get a head start on St Patrick's Day crafts. We ending up making a handprint rainbow and leprechaun. Big Brother is learning about leprechauns in kindergarten right now so it ties in perfectly. Today he told me that when I say leprechaun trap I have to whisper the word 'trap' and if he catches one he will get his pot of gold..... too cute!

Handprint Rainbow and Leprechaun St Patrick's Day craft
3 yrs & 6 yrs old


Supplies needed
Paint
Paintbrush
Ink pad - optional
Paper - large size if making a handprint rainbow
Googly eyes
Foam shamrocks (Dollar Tree) - optional


How to make a Handprint Rainbow

We started with the color red. I painted my daughter's hand and then made a handprint on one side of the paper near the edge. Repeat these steps to make a handprint for each color of the Rainbow going in an arc shape. Big Brother chose to paint his instead.


How to make a Handprint Leprechaun

Paint all 4 fingers orange as well as the bottom of the palm (just a small stripe). We made one with the thumb painted and one without. Paint the remaining areas a peach-toned color. Press down on paper with the fingers in a closed position (so they are touching each other). I drew an outline of a hat which the kids then painted green with a black stripe. When dry, add googly eyes and draw a nose and mouth. My son used green googly eyes for his leprechaun.


How to make a Fingerprint Shamrock

The kids made shamrocks by dipping their finger into the green ink pad and then stamping it on the paper. Make 3 or 4 of them in a cluster and draw on a stem.

Big Brother wrote 'Lucky Charm' on his and I wrote 'Our Little Leprechaun' on Little Sister's.
