Leprechaun Hats - Kids Treats

Green plastic containers are used as leprechaun hats

If you're looking for an easy and economical St. Patrick's day treat to give to your kids or to bring to their school or even to give to their teachers, this is the one for you!

Really, it's so EASY!

No painting involved. :)

snack containers dressed up as hats for St. Patrick's day

I used these Snack Containers found at the Dollar Tree Store, two for one dollar and they even come with a spoon. They have them in many colors but of course, green is the one that works here. ;)
paper, glue and green plastic snack container are the materials used for hats

The other materials you'll need are paper (black, gold and green), glue, and a small piece of tape.

The band is created with a long strip of black paper to fit the top rim of the container.
A small gold rectangle with an even smaller black one on it, is attached to the band.
Green paper circles to fit the base of the container or top of the hat were also cut out.

But, I know I know,  too much work, so, instead HERE you can download the printables. The only thing you need, is to cut them out and secure them with tape.
