Lady the Leprechaun Shapes Fun

Meet Lady the Leprechaun. Most of us have never heard of a female leprechaun and the stories we were told were all about, well, round short men with beards and pots of gold. We thought that girls make great leprechauns as well and created this puppet and shapes recognition activities featuring Lady the Leprechaun.
