Leprechaun Movies for Kids

We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year by watching some of the Best St. Patrick’s Day Movies. Here is a list of Leprechaun Movies for Kids.

How do you explain Leprechauns to kids?

A leprechaun is a little Irish fairy who wears a shoemaker’s outfit. Leprechauns are rude little men that live alone in the woods, manufacturing shoes and guarding their gold hoard. If you catch a leprechaun, he’ll be forced to reveal the whereabouts of his gold pots.

What is the story of Leprechauns?

A leprechaun, according to legend, is a type of fairy that stands about the same height as a three-year-old child. A leprechaun is typically shown as a bearded man dressed in a green suit and wearing a hat. The Leprechaun, according to legend, is a shoemaker who spends most of his time manufacturing and repairing shoes.
