A leprechaun visited our house on St. Patrick’s Day.
Tom and Huck like to build leprechaun traps to try and catch the leprechaun:
That pot of gold is really a trap door.
The boys theorize that the leprechaun, a greedy little trickster, will try to go for the pot of gold. He might also be attracted to the potatoes the boys used as bait. And when the leprechaun makes his move, he’ll stumble through the trap door and fall into the box below, where Tom and Huck can trap him and have a little visit:
So far they’ve been unsuccessful. No leprechauns trapped here. They are sneaky little guys.
But the leprechaun has visited here. Here’s what he left behind:
Gold coins, shamrock confetti, candy shamrocks, and chocolate leprechauns. Delicious!
And he also left a note with a picture of an Irish angel and a little Saint Patrick’s Day verse. Every year, he leaves behind his green footprints, too — all over the house and the leprechaun trap:
Hope you had fun!
See you at the end of the rainbow!
