St. Patrick’s Day Kids Craft: Leprechaun Treat Cups
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon, and these cute Leprechaun Hat Treat Cups pull double duty as both a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft for kids to make and also as a tasty holiday treat! Perfect for teachers in the classroom, Scouts, and more!
Supplies Needed for Leprechaun Hat Treat Cups:
- Green Paper Cups
- Black, Light Green, and Dark Green Craft Foam (can also use Cardstock or Heavy Construction Paper)
- Gold Glitter Paper
- Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 Cutting Machine (optional) or Scissors
- Glue or Tape (we recommend a Low-Temperature Glue Gun or Quick-Dry Tacky Glue)
- Treat Mix – we used Gold Caramel Chocolates, Rainbow Jelly Beans, and Popcorn
Use your Cricut machine and this Leprechaun Hat Treat file to cut your pieces from the materials. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can also easily cut these by hand with scissors or a craft knife.
Note: If using the Cricut Maker to cut craft foam, I recommend using the “Flex Foam” setting with the Rotary Blade. If using the Cricut Explore Air 2, I recommend the “Craft Foam” setting with the Deep-Point Blade.
Use your adhesive of choice to add the pieces on to the paper cups.
Fill the cups up with your favorite rainbow-themed snacks and treats!
We used Gold Caramel Chocolates, Rainbow Jelly Beans, and Popcorn to fill our treat cups, but there are SO many different options!
Pretzels, Skittles, M&M’s, Rolos, and Rainbow Airheads would also make a fun rainbow treat mix!
These adorable leprechaun hat treat cups are the perfect St. Patrick’s Day kids craft for class parties, Scout meetings, church groups, and more! Quick, easy-to-make, and super duper cute! After the kids have crafted their leprechaun hats, the teacher or group leader can fill each of the cups with the yummy treat mix.

The file is an SVG file, so if you have the Designer Edition of Silhouette Studio, it will open and work in there just fine as well! 🙂
