We had a visit from a leprechaun last night. I always had leprechauns come to my classroom but never at home. Imagine our surprise when we woke up to a mess in our house. The plan was to catch him in this trap. The kids were really excited as you can see. We put a gold coin on the top so when he reached for it he would fall through the trap door on top.
Apparently, he fell into our box because the chocolate coin was in there along with several Rolos. The coin had been nibbled so it must have taken him a while to figure out how to get out. But he did it.
I forgot to take a picture of the green water in the toilets. The kids decided that the leprechaun peed in all the toilets (you know they pee green.)
He left a rhyming scavenger hunt and the kids had to follow these balloons to find the treat he left.
And he left the treats in their shoes. The shoes were scattered all over the hall and filled with chocolates.
After we cleaned up the mess, we had green pancakes to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Hope everyone had as much fun as we did.
