Tricksy Li’l Leprechauns

clover_leaf.jpgI don’t intend to short-change anyone, but today’s post is going to be short and sweet.  I have a couple of other deadlines that have to be met today, too, and, well, life is what it is.  đŸ™‚ 

However, last night I had my 9yo daughter look through Kaboose.com (which has a nice history about St. Patrick’s Day) and Family Fun to find a good St. Patty’s Day craft to do.  Leave it to Ol’ Faithful (Family Fun) to have a great idea.  We’ll give this a go, and on Monday I’ll post a picture of our box, where it was hid in the yard (or house, if it’s raining) and the joy of the kiddos finding it.  Fortunately for us, the older kids will be on Spring Break, so it will be “family fun” for all.

On the step stones, there were little flower hole punch remnants from green construction paper sprinkled along.  I called these part of the leprechaun trail.  The kids, however, insisted that they were leprechaun poop and after examining them, threw them down in disgust.

Naturally, the older kids take claim for finding the treasure.
