Leprechaun King Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Being from Ireland, I just couldn’t resist sharing a little bit of leprechaun crafting mischief with you.

This craft is made with a humble toilet paper tube and scraps of paper!

Caution! Have your kids keep their eyes peeled on this wee fella. Leprechauns are smart, mischievous little faeries who’ll do anything to escape capture, even if it means turning them into a frog!
