A St. Patrick’s Day Story

Step: 2

Download the pdf for the St. Patrick's Day Story Project Pattern which includes the Leprechaun’s Hat Trick Story. All the pieces in this project are used to tell the story of “The Leprechaun’s Hat Trick”. The story appears in a fun and interactive way to read to children. After all the pieces are made, you can introduce each one to the children by name. Then as you read the story, hold up the piece when you come to its icon in the story and have the children call out its name.

You will use the large boy, large hexagon, large heart, shoe, small circle, and small square pegboards to create your projects. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.

Step: 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. Let the design cool.

Step: 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat step two. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.
