Easy to Follow Photo Tutorial!

First, paint the birdhouse. Since our helper is young he used his fingers to paint the birdhouse! Finger painting is a great activity to help develop fine motor skills. It’s fun to see what each child paints, how much detail they add and what colours they choose.

Next, paint the wood circle light brown. Set it aside to dry completely then attach the birdhouse using glue.

Draw tiny footprints onto the wooden base with a black marker. Littles may need help creating the footprints.

Then, glue on the flowers. Add as many as you or your child like!

Finally, glue on the gold pieces (gold sequins!)

We hope you loved this cute Lucky Leprechaun House as much as we do! If you’re looking for more St. Patrick’s Day crafts or recipes, be sure to check out our other St. Patrick’s Day ideas!
