While I was out one evening the kids got to cut pencils...
Luckily, we had a Spiderman bandaid nearby - then all was made right with the world.
On to the trap making...
While we were doing the work Joshy got bored and began running around in circles in the living room.
Everyone was so proud of the trap... the kids did a great job with it! It was wrapped in foil because (as the kids learned at school) leprechauns are attracted to shiny objects. We added a piece of fools gold in the middle to help lure Lucky in.
The next morning Lucky had, indeed, come... there were little footprints all over the lid and inside of the box to prove it. Leprechauns must be magic though... by the time we woke up he was gone. He knew our gold was fake, but thought we were very clever so he left us a treat of gold chocolates.
Okay, so, on to Easter pictures next... stay tuned... Maybe someday I'll be caught up.
