St. Patrick’s Day Craft Leprechaun Hat Crayon Holder

I love to add a drawing activity to any party table. I usually use easel paper as my table cloth. I just unroll, and tape until the whole table is white with a paper table cloth. Then I add stickers, and crayons for immediate entertainment.

Tips and Tricks for this Toilet Paper Tube Leprechaun Hat

  • if the paper roll tips over, from the weight of the crayons, you can slide a Dixie cup or something similar into the inside of the paper tube. Fill it with rice or dry beans to weight it down and hold crayons
  • A fun display for coloring sheets is to use a Leprechaun hat you purchased from the store. Turn it upside down, and use the inside bowl as a sticker & paper holder
