How to catch a Leprechaun...
Recently my hubby and I helped our grandson Ryan to build a Leprechaun trap. Yes, that's right, a Leprechaun trap! We had so much fun! We heard about them last year on some of the blogs and thought it would be a great project to try. Now I've never heard of a Leprechaun being caught before but who knows. This just might be the year that it happens.
If you are interested in building a trap with your special little someone there are tons of 'how to' information available on the Internet.
In our case this is what we did. First we went on the Internet to find out all we could about these nasty and very tricky little characters. Then we discussed what would be the best way to capture one. Since the Leprechaun is an Irish legend Ryan decided to make his trap as green as possible. He made a list of all of the things that he thought would attract a Leprechaun and then we helped him to incorporate them into the trap. Everyone knows how much Leprechauns like gold so Ryan decided to use gold glitter on his stairs. His net also has flecks of gold running through it. I was fortunate enough to have found that material a head of time. Ryan made a rainbow and also a sign to help the Leprechaun know which way he is supposed to go. He made a path out of shamrocks for the Leprechaun to follow and then put some artificial grass in the bottom of the box. We think he did a very good job!
He even put a treasure chest in the bottom of the box. A sure way to lure a Leprechaun in don't you think?
The day before Saint Patrick's Day my hubby and I will deliver the trap to Ryan's house. Who knows what he will find inside of it on Saint Patrick's Day?
Our little guy is growing up so fast. We are truly blessed to have these special moments with him.
Charli loves project days too because any time spent with Ryan is a very happy day for her.
It's hard to believe that Saint Patrick's Day is right around the corner. Do you celebrate Saint Patrick's Day in your home? I would love to hear from you.
It's been snowing here for the last several hours. It's very pretty and it looks like we already have an inch or two of accumulation.
I hope all of you have a wonderful day ♥
Happy Monday everyone!
With warmest regards, Carol
