Looking for some easy St. Patrick's Day crafts to do with the kids?  This Lucky Leprechaun is a great project for the whole family.  Punch out the pieces for the Leprechaun face and have kids try to assemble them like a puzzle.  This is an easy and fun way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and use up your paper scraps at the same time.

  2. Cut pieces as shown. I used a punch to cut the shapes because it gives a cleaner cut.
