  • Download and print the playdough mats or drawing and colouring sheets that you wish to use.
  • For the leprechaun emotions playdough mats grab your coloured playdough and use it to make the different faces of the leprechaun, rolling out playdough to make the mouth or rolling it into balls to make the eyes.

  • You can also use playdough to make the shamrock on the leprechaun's hat. Use the sheets with pictures of the leprechaun for suggestions on what each emotion should look like.
  • For the smaller sheets with multiple leprechauns on them you can choose to write in the emotion shown or either draw or use playdough to create the faces.


Inserting your playdough mats into a plastic wallet or laminating them will ensure that the playdough peals off them more easily and also means that you can reuse them. This is also a good option if you are making these with a groupĀ  of children.
