St. Paddy's Day is just a week away; and if you're starved for some crafts to do with the kiddos, you'll love this idea. It's a Leprechaun house! Capture your leprechaun by making this home a trap or just give him a nice place to stay during his visit. With a simple supply list and an afternoon, you'll have a great March activity for your kids.

Watch the video to get the tutorial! We also added green kinetic sand and a foot stamp to make Leprechaun feet.

The beauty of this craft is that it's simple and relatively mess-free. You can personalize the houses and use the kinetic sand again and again.
