Recently, while shopping at Target for birthday party supplies, my oldest noticed that the Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter decorations were all being displayed at the same time. (I noticed the bathing suits and how right at that very moment, my pants suddenly seemed too tight!) He especially liked some funny striped St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Straws. “A leprechaun mustache, Mommy!” he said. They were cute, but the price tag wasn’t. I took a mental picture and decided we would make them ourselves.
St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Straws
- Mustache Straw Template
- Green striped paper straws
- Orange cardstock or construction paper
- Mini Glue Dots
Draw a mustache on the orange paper then cut it out. Use a glue dot to attach the mustache to the straw. If desired, cover the back of the straw with a small strip of orange paper.
Add 2-3 drops of green food coloring to a glass of milk to make “Leprechaun Milk.” Your children will be surprised!
