We are gonna trap ourselves some Leprechauns....

So here is our little surprise for our little leprechaun friends... I am not sure how I am going to break it to my son that we will not actually trap any of the little guys - he is dead set that he is going to catch one and take it to school tomorrow!! Should be an interesting discovery for him in the morning!!

So just so you all know how "on the ball" I am .. I have been so EXCITED about this idea for weeks. I totally spaced it until tonight when we were walking around Costco and I saw a bin of empty boxes .. and I suddenly remembered - so I snagged a few!!
So because I am so good at planning this out... I forgot to buy gold coins to leave for the leprechauns- so if you look really close you can see my lame excuse with circles cut out of gold paper!! I just told my kids we were being sneaky like the leprechauns.. and only pretending to leave them real coins- good thinking huh!! They thought I was pretty clever for that one!! And as long as I can fool them then that's really all that matters -right?


  1. Ha ha ha! You're so cute! That's a sweet idea! Love it!

  2. LOL whatever makes it fun for the kids right?:) Last year we left some fools gold I have had sence i was a kid in our trap and he ended up leaving the kids a little treat and took the gold! they LOVED it!:)

  3. LOVE IT! When I was young, our elementary school encouraged us to make traps and leave them at school for a whole week. We never got one, but the leprechauns sometimes set off the trap and some candy was left behind. It really is one of the most fun memories I have of school.

  4. My son begged me to make a leprechaun trap...I failed him! :) Yours turned out SO cute!
