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.
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.
St. Patrick’s Day Tricks & Treats
Their Leprechaun turned over their furniture – leaving a trail of gold wrapped treats.
He also messed up their decorations.
Then he hung a streamer rainbow and put a pot-of-gold at the end of it for the kids to find.
Breakfast wasn’t the same that morning because the Leprechaun had turned their milk GREEN!
And, he must have forgotten to flush after using the potty because the water in the toilet was GREEN TOO!
Lucky for them, he left them really great treats for lunch: a Four Leaf Clover Sandwich, Green Jello, GOLDfish crackers, some gold wrapped candy and a lemon lime soda.
I love that these ideas are easy to duplicate. I look at them and think, “I can do that!” and I think I will, my daughter will love them! Thanks for sharing them with us Cari!
