Leprechaun Puppet Craft

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.


Children love to have ‘conversations’ with a puppet. Each verbal interaction with their puppet will encourage language development. Children who are generally shy really benefit from the opportunity to let the puppet be their voice.
