How to Make a Leprechaun Finger Puppet for St. Patrick’s Day

Oh boy, do I have a fun craft for you today!!  I don’t know if the craft is more fun or the playing with the finished craft once it is done.  Today I’m going to show you how to make a Leprechaun Finger Puppet.  We give you the template… you just simply print it off and your craft is halfway done.  You can choose to print off the black & white template and color the Leprechaun yourself…. or, if you would prefer, you could print off the color template and continue with the craft from there.  The choice is yours.  So, let’s get started.
