St. Patty's Day Craft

E had an afternoon off from school, so naturally she asked if we could do a craft. I hadn't prepared anything, so we went online to Family Fun where we found this cute leprechaun craft. As "luck" would have it, we had all the neccesary materials, so we got down to work.
First we painted the tubes:

And then we had to let them dry for about an hour:

After that it was a matter of using the hot glue gun to attach the pipe cleaner beard and feet, foam hat and arms. Then the kids used a marker to draw in the face. They ended up really looking really cute:

I have no idea why N has this expression on his face! All I can say is that he is a goofball!

E added a little clover detail of her own

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
