DIY Leprechaun Box & St. Patrick’s Day Fun

Make a Leprechaun Box with Oliver Poons & friends!

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and Oli Kids Co. has some suggestions to make this holiday extra fun for your child!

Have you thought about gathering materials for your child to make a leprechaun box? This is sure to delight the imagination. The thought of catching a leprechaun is beyond enchanting.

As a matter of fact, making a leprechaun box is quite simple. Just use a suitable box from one of your online deliveries. Your child can then decorate the box and fill it with self made goodies to attract a leprechaun. Crayons, paper, and scissors will do. A little research together on what leprechauns like might be in order. Specifically, gold coins, four leaf clovers, rainbows, stickers, glitter, and anything green will do!

Equally important if you would like, is adding an educational component to this activity. Especially on holidays, sending cards is a fun way to make friends and family smile, as well as teaching your child about correspondence. Oli Kids Co. has character cards designed with a young child in mind. The simple print and color format is perfect for coloring, personalizing, and beginning writers.
