St. Patrick’s Day Tricks & Treats

St Patricks Day Tricks - Events To Celebrate

I remember as a kid, I loved St. Patrick’s Day at our elementary school. We had teachers there that went way beyond a pot of gold construction paper craft. One of the first grade teachers dyed her feet green each year claiming that she was turning into a Leprechaun! My favorite was in second grade our teacher let us know that we had a pesky Leprechaun in our classroom and each night when we left he would do mischievous things in the classroom. We were so excited to come to school to find our chairs upside down, or the trash strewn all over the classroom, or funny pictures drawn on the chalkboards. These St. Patrick’s Day tricks are some of my fondest memories.

My friend Cari did something fun with her four little ones last year that I wanted to share because it took me right back to the fun of being in elementary school.
