This has to be my last post about leprechauns! I want to share what we do on St. Patrick's Day itself... or for this year, what we do on Friday since St. Paddy's day is on a Sunday.
When the kids come in the classroom things will be out of place, the unifix cubes will be spilled all over the carpet and it will just be a BIG mess!
The kids will find a note from the leprechaun. Did you know that leprechauns have really messy writing? Here you can see some of my friends finding the note... and look at that - the leprechaun left the cap off of the marker! The kids go nuts over this since I am cray-cray about capping pens in my room.
They run around and check all the traps! Look at this one! We didn't catch the leprechaun, but we can see his footprints to know he was there!
Another fun thing we do is the leprechaun leaves us a "magical" treat. Inside this bag:
When we stir in the magical white powder with milk... which of course is white... the kids go nuts when it turns green! It is so fun!
I will say - one box is more than enough because most of them don't love the taste of it and I think they are a bit nervous to eat it.
Have fun! Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
