Make a Leprechaun’s Walk Book

printable leprechaun's walk book for kids

My girls have been looking ahead on their calendars to find the next holiday – guess it’s time to pull out some St. Patrick’s Day activities!

In the deep, dark archives of my teaching days I found this fun fill-in-the-blank book that you can make with your child, along with a happy little leprechaun to walk through the story.

  1. Download and print the book. Cut the stack of pages in half (don’t cut the last page with the leprechauns!), put the top set of pages on top of the bottom set, and staple together.
  2. Illustrate each page and choose words to fill in the blanks.
  3. Color your leprechaun, cut out, and attach to a straw or popsicle stick.
  4. Take your leprechaun through the story on his special walk!

(The book design is mine, but I’m not sure where I got that cute little leprechaun graphic – it was just a copy in my teacher stuff!)

Happy Playing!

Very cute! Wishin’ my little guy was big enough to do this book, but I’ll hang onto it for another year. I think the leprechaun is DJ Inkers clipart, by the way :)

We did these last night — they completely occupied my 4 and 6 year olds. The 4-year-old loved that he could memorize the book so he could “read” it to us later. I’d say this fully entranced them for a good hour, not counting the excited readings they gave us later. I was too lazy to dig up a stick for the puppet, but they didn’t seem to mind, just moved the leprechaun through the book by holding on to him. I’ll definitely be blogging about this one!

For my littleones I am going to give them some books and they can tear or cut out pictures and glue in because they are to small to write yet

also for real little ones cut out pictures my self and put in a bowl and let them pick them out and glue on
