Leprechaun Puppet

Easy printable Leprechaun puppet for young children.

Sure’n you’ll have a grand time making and playing with this Leprechaun Puppet created by the Free Kids Crafts Team. Puppets have been a staple in the world of communication with children. The ability to allow children to speak freely through an anonymous advocate make puppets both a fun and useful prop.

Trivia:

The most obvious benefit of puppet-play is encouraging the child’s imagination and creativity. We have seen children coming up with stories involving their dolls, from giving them names, to elaborate scenarios with their other toys; be it a Barbie or a Transformer!
