(if i could have turned the light green this week i would have…instead i just did it to these photos)
well, way back when it was st patrick’s day it was also u week…and i was determined to make a connection:
a leprechaun likes gold, the pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow, rainbows come after rain, in rainy weather you use umbrellas! yeah! st patrick’s day –> u week connection!
we had a leprechaun around and he was tricky all week. he left us magic cups that turned our water green. he left droppings that we could eat (green tic tacs and m&ms)! he would mess move our shoes around!
(really it was a drop of green food coloring hiding in the bottom of the cup, but wow, we tricked them good!)
the glue turned green which was perfect for covering our little wooden pots.
after getting covered with glue the pots went in a brown bag of green glitter.
after a few shakes the glittery green pot was ready! now we just needed gold!
so we built a leprechaun trap.
i’m happy to announce we DID trap him a couple of times, but he snuck out before we saw him. he did leave some droppings and a clue about where the gold was.
yes! we found it outside!
some of us kept looking for him…he could have been ANYWHERE you know!

My seven year old thought the trap was genius! I agree.
What a good trick with the water too – I’ll have to make a note for next year for my class.
Thanks for posting!
