- The Fam
We love tricking the girls, I know that it might be wrong…but it feels so good!
Husband has even gone so far as to convince Raine that I’ve gone back to primary school and just passed Kindergarten all over again. So every time I go to a school meeting I have to tell her I’m going to my class.
Every year on St.Patricks day we go to great lengths to trick our children into believing that Leprechauns visit our home in the middle of the night, if they wear green to bed. They love the fact that Leprechauns cause so much mischief and leave them candy. So now it’s become this huge thing that Raine thinks about all year because she is determined to catch a Leprechaun in the act.
This year Raine has devised a plan with Husband the involves lots of food that leprechauns go crazy for, and then somehow having a trigger button which will then snap a picture of the unsuspecting leprechaun. This is going to take a fantastic photoshop editing job on HUSBANDS part. She has given up on actually catching a leprechaun to lead her to their gold , she points out that they are magic, they would just disappear!
So I’ve got my chocolate coins ready to go, some bracelets that the leprechauns will accidentally leave and some stickers to gift, but I wanted to add some new tricky ideas. Here are a collection of ideas I gathered from Pinterest that I’m hoping to put into action:
1. Leprechaun Ears that we made a couple years back. This year I want to try and make them with a headband.
4. Read Clever Tom and the Leprechaun, with the girls at bedtime the night before.
6. Make sure we make our traditonal leprechaun traps in hopes of catching a leprechaun to lead us to their pot of gold.
7. Show the girls how the tricky leprechauns turned the water in Chicago GREEN!
9. St. Patricks Day Potion at Corduroy Dreams. I WANT to do this…but I’m also unsure if Raine will actually believe me. She’s at the age that doing outrageous stuff like this is risky, so we’ll see how this plays out.
Anyone else of St.Patricks Day traditions with your kids? Please share.
