What does a bunch of Leprechaun’s together spell?
That’s right, they simply spell FUN.
Well maybe with a little bit of mischief thrown in there too, but we will put that aside and focus on the fun!
With St Patrick’s day racing towards us, you may very well be preparing some celebrations with friends and family. In among all the party preparation it can be easy for small children to either get under our feet, or simply get bored.
I don’t know how many times I have been trying to prepare for a party when all I hear is “can I help please mommy”.
This is when I know that I have two choices.
- I can either say yes and then regret it 5 minutes later as each task takes me a million times longer than it would have done on my own.
- Or I say no. Then I am left to deal with a sad child who just wants to help and is bored from being shoved out the way all the time.
Well, now there is a third option! Why not have the young children involved, but not “actually” involved.
I have created these Leprechaun coloring pages which you can download now absolutely free. With four designs to choose from, they will certainly keep the children occupied.
Kids Can Be Involved With The Party Decoration
My daughter has recently enjoyed helping with the decoration for parties, and this often means creating a picture or a craft to place on the wall.
It helps her feel like she has contributed something and it’s there in pride of place for all to see when the guests arrive.
Creating the craft also helps keeps her occupied whilst I can get on with other matters at hand. It’s a win win for everyone.
These Leprechaun coloring pages would therefore be perfect if you were preparing for a St Patrick’s day celebration, as what better way to decorate for a party than to have lots of fun loving Leprechaun’s staring at you.
Of course there is nothing to stop adults from enjoying the St Patrick’s day coloring pages either. Coloring can be rather addictive and the chances are if you enjoyed it as a child, you will still enjoy it as an adult.
Of course every time you see an adult calmly coloring in a child’s coloring page, they always say it is to “help”, but the secret is that they really just enjoy doing it. So print off a few extra if you know one or two of those adults.
The Leprechaun Coloring Pages Make A Great After Dinner Activity
Bring a few of the Leprechaun coloring pages out at dinner too, as they are a great way to keep children entertained at the dinner table when conversation is in full flow. It will stop the constant requests to leave the table or worse still sighing because of boredom.
Once dinner is finished, the children can enjoy a quite coloring in, whilst everyone else relax’s.
Coloring Pencils To Create The Masterpiece
When it comes to actually completing the coloring pages, the material used can either be the make or break for the kids. Some love using crayons, others pencils and others will only use pens.
I know the struggle. Trying to get my 3 year old son to use crayons is like pulling teeth. He simply does not want a bar of them. He see’s his big sister using coloring pens and that is exactly what he wants to use.
No fear though as there is always a solution to the problem. If the kids are coloring pen freaks then simply use some washable ones. That way regardless if they get a little bit excited and end up getting some on their clothes, it easily washes out.
As for crayons, there are good crayons and there are bad crayons. Have you ever tried coloring with a bad crayon? I have, and it’s a nightmare. The color never goes on smoothly as it’s supposed to, and if I can become frustrated I can understand why the young kids do. So if I use crayons, I ALWAYS use crayola ones. Simply because I have always found them to be enjoyable to color with. The colors are always nice and bright too, which is a plus.
So if you would like to know which coloring utensil to use, then these are my recommendations for you. The silly scents have been included because kids GO NUTS over scented pens. It makes them 110% more attractive than a normal pen (speaking from experience with kids who are addicted to coloring with pens).
