Cardboard Leprechaun Lookers


I remember it was after 5pm and I was racing home from work. I’d seen the most adorable idea for Leprechaun Lookers somewhere and was determined to make a pair with my kids that evening, even if it meant a late dinner and bedtime. It had been a long week, and we were ready to connect over some arty-crafty FUN.

When I got home, I threw my bags and computer down in the kitchen, scrounged up some scrappy supplies and the glue gun, and let my kids decorate their “binoculars” however they wanted—they gave me their instructions and I hot-glued it all together. I don’t remember what we ended up having for dinner or if anyone cared that it was late. All I remember is a big beautiful mess on the kitchen table, and lots and lots of giggles.

That was last year on this very day. It’s the inspiration behind the Leprechaun Lookers craft in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Boogie Kit. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did with my kids!
