My Little Leprechauns

Jenny over at Crazy About Cricut is celebrating Thankful Thursday. If you haven't heard about Thankful Thursday, it's all about family time, crafting with the kiddos and spending time together.

The assignment this week was to make a Leprechaun craft.  I threw a hundred ideas around in my head before my kid's picked this one out.  They both LOVED seeing themselves as a Leprechaun.  

I used Photoshop to place a picture of my boys inside the Leprechaun face!! They thought is was so funny!!!  I sized the photos so I could cut them to fit an A2 sized card.  I printed two for each of my boys (in case a mistake was made that was not repairable!! :)

Here is my 8-year-old coloring his picture...

and my 6-year-old working on his Leprechaun. 

The finished cards.
My boys wanted to give these to their teachers, so I created the sentiment block for the inside.

It reads:
"We are so lucky to have a teacher like you!"

This is the coloring page Leprechaun we used for out project. You are welcome to grab it for your own version of our project! I'd love to see what you and your kids come up with.
