We did manage to do some St. Patrick coloring pages. We also managed to make our annual leprechaun trap. This year we decided that since leprechauns keep their gold at the end of a rainbow, we would try to trick one this way. We drew a very fancy rainbow and taped it to the outside of a clear draw string bag. We put chocolate gold coins at the bottom of the bag so it looks like the gold is at the end of the rainbow. When the leprechaun goes inside to retrieve his gold his weight will pull the strings together trapping the leprechaun. Seems simple enough to us.
FYI: At the time that this post was published we still hadn't caught an elusive leprechaun.
Leprechauns are tricky. We found our trap emptied of all the chocolate gold coins. The following letter was left in their place.....
So Fred thinks he's pretty clever. But, like I told the kids we are going to have the last laugh. Fred hasn't yet realized that the gold coins are chocolate coins. Boy, is he gonna be disappointed.
Rooster didn't get to go to school today. But, she still enjoyed running around the house in this ridiculous green sweater:)
