Print out the beard templates on colored paper or white paper.
Let kids cut them out and decorate them if they want. I think it would be fun to glue yarn on the beards to give them some texture.
Use glue dots to attach them to their face or punch a hole on each side of the beard, tie a string to it, and tie around their head. When my kids where done wearing their beards we slowly pulled them off without any problem. I am guessing that not all glue dots are the same so if yours seem extra sticky skip the glue dot and just use string.
We hope your wee little Leprechauns have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Thanks for crafting with us!
