My girls have spent the past few days trying to figure out how to catch a leprechaun and I gotta say they came up with something pretty clever. We all know that leprechauns are mischievous little daredevils that cannot say 'no' to fun. SO, the girls decided to lure the little thrill-seekers with a rainbow super slide!
When we woke up this morning there was evidence that we had, in fact, been lepreCONNED. Our toilet water was turned shamrock green. There were tiny, green footprints along the leprechaun trap and a rope ladder was dangling from the outside of the cup. Turns out that our leprechauns worked as a team, too! H was pretty bummed that her leprechauns escaped, but at least they left behind some gold chocolate coins. She is positive that we were visited by Mary and Paddy because they have been leaving notes and lots of mayhem in her classroom and, “we only live a few blocks from school so it makes sense that those are our leprechauns, too.”
Pro-tip from H: Be sure to stock up on popcorn and pretzels because, “leprechauns LOVE salty food”.
Front view of the rainbow super slide. The slide, rainbow, and decorative clover were made from cardboard and colored with Kwik Stix. The little flag was made with washi tape and a toothpick. The cup is just a recycled styrofoam cup that the girls painted gold.
