This set of St. Patrick’s cut and paste worksheets will make a fun addition to your March festivities. Your preschooler will be so entertained while finding the missing pieces of the puzzles and playing the memory game. All the worksheets provide scissors practice. And we’ve included two darling paper crafts: a movable leprechaun puppet and a paper pot of gold that your preschooler will love pairing together during independent playtime!
The most challenging activity within this set is the movable paper puppet leprechaun craft. To assemble your leprechaun puppet follow these simple steps.
1) Print the pattern. We recommend printing it on cardstock paper for longevity during play. (You can also laminate the pieces if you wish.)
2) Cut out the leprechaun pattern as neatly as possible. Your little one may need help cutting around all the corners, but once he is assembled, they will love playing with happy little guy. 🙂
3) Using a hole punch, make holes for the moving parts – 4 in the leprechaun’s body, 1 in each arm, and 1 in each leg.
4) Loosely connect the arms and the legs to the leprechaun’s body using brads. (These metallic mini brads from Michaels work perfectly for this paper craft and are great to have on hand for future DIY projects.)
