Celebrate National Leprechaun Day by making this toilet roll leprechaun king and a group of his leprechaun friends for some shenanigans with your kids!
Being from Ireland, I just couldn’t resist sharing a little bit of leprechaun crafting mischief with you.
This craft is made with a humble toilet paper tube and scraps of paper!
Caution! Have your kids keep their eyes peeled on this wee fella. Leprechauns are smart, mischievous little faeries who’ll do anything to escape capture, even if it means turning them into a frog!
Toilet Roll Leprechaun King

Preparing the materials:
- a rectangle of green paper for the King’s suit
- a rectangle of orange paper for the beard with slits cut all along one side
- two longer strips of orange paper for the hair at either side of the beard
- a strip of gold paper, cut into a crown shape
*You can also just use construction paper!
Curl the orange beard and hair strips around a pencil (or pen) to give it a lovely ‘bounce’.
Glue the green paper suit, beard, and hair into position on the toilet paper tube.
Then, glue on the crown.
Finally, draw little dots for the eyes, nose, and mouth. I used a mini brown pom pom for the nose for added cuteness!
And that’s it!
