Are you looking for a directed drawing activity for March? This little leprechaun is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I love to use directed drawing in my classroom.
Why Use Directed Drawing?
Directed drawing activities help develop visual/special skills, improve concentration, and help students learn to follow directions.

- Draw a large “U” shape in the middle of the page. It should start and end in the middle of the page.
- Add legs and a rim to the pot.
- Above the middle of the rim draw a small circle. Add the two sides of a bow tie.
- Make a wavy “U” shape coming up from the bow tie. This will be the leprechauns beard.
- Add elf ears to the leprechaun.
- Start the hat by drawing a slightly curved line above the beard and ears turn this into an oval
- Draw a hat above the brim and add a ribbon across.
- Draw a “U” inside of the beard for the leprechauns face.
- Add arms to each side by drawing rectangles.
- Make cuffs by drawing small thing rectangles next to the arms.
- Draw hands with 5 fingers on each arm. Make the first and last finger shorter.
- Draw a semi circle for the nose.
- Draw two round eyes.
- Draw small thin ovals above the eyes to make the leprechaun’s eyebrows.
- Add a half smile with a line.
- Decorate by drawing a rainbow, ground, and some four leaf clovers. Then COLOR!
