The other day I realized that I have office stickers in almost every color of the rainbow left over from other projects and that gave me an idea. I went to the dollar store and bought some gold seals that are meant to be put on the flaps of envelopes.
This was a really easy project. We just arranged the office stickers into a rainbow shape, cut a pot shape from construction paper, and used the seals to represent gold coins.
Our finished projects:
To go along with our project we read The Story of the Leprechaun about a leprechaun and shoemaker who is so good at what he does that he collects a big pot of gold. Unfortunately, one of his customers would like the pot of gold for himself and traps the leprauchaun. The clever leprauchaun tricks the greedy man and relocates his pot of gold to the end of the rainbow where it will be safe.
shape leprechauns would be another great project for this book:
