Who doesn’t love to celebrate a fun holiday, even if it is a truly American made one. 😉 Quinn came home from school last year with a Leprechaun house for homework. He had a super fun teacher. 😉 Honestly it was the first I had ever heard of it but we rolled with it and incorporated into our Leprechaun fun for the boys on St. Patrick’s day.
Build a Leprechaun trap to try and capture that mischievous little creature. Why capture a leprechaun? So he’ll give you his gold of course! Quinn insists he build a house for the leprechaun, he doesn’t want to trap him. Either way it’s a fun little art project that lets kiddos go wild with creatively and utilizes random supplies you have at home!
2. Leprechaun Graffiti
Our leprechaun draws silly graffiti on our bathroom mirror.
3. Leprechaun Tricks
He also likes to create a toilet paper trail into the living room, making a bit of a mess but also leading the boys to a special treat!
4. Lucky Charms
Last year he left the boys a box of Lucky Charms (wrapped in toilet paper of course).
5. Cereal Tricks
Naturally, that treat didn’t come without a trick though. He dyed our milk green! The boys shrieked when they saw the milk. 😉 Other ideas include putting plain cereal in a Lucky Charms box or removing all the marshmallows…
6. Leprechaun Treats
Our leprechaun leaves yummy treats after his visit. Simple Rolos (golden treasure) or fun Lucky Charms Cupcakes are both a big hit in our house!
7. Lunch and Dinner Fun
And why not continue the fun into the afternoon and evening with a fun St. Patrick’s Day Bento Box or green themed muffin tin meal for lunch. Or even Green Soda Bread with your corned beef and cabbage dinner.
