Paint the outside edge of your paper plate.
While paint dries, cut out your construction paper into the following shapes: green paper- hat (be creative and make the hat as crazy as you want!), yellow paper- square with the middle cut out, black- long strip.
Glue the construction paper pieces together to make your leprechaun hat.
When the plate is dry, cut out the middle.
When the hat and paint are both dry, glue the hat to the top of your plate.
