a leprechaun likes gold, the pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow, rainbows come after rain, in rainy weather you use umbrellas!  yeah!  st patrick’s day –> u week connection!

we had a leprechaun around and he was tricky all week.  he left us magic cups that turned our water green.  he left droppings that we could eat (green tic tacs and m&ms)!  he would mess move our shoes around!

the glue turned green which was perfect for covering our little wooden pots.

after getting covered with glue the pots went in a brown bag of green glitter.

i’m happy to announce we DID trap him a couple of times, but he snuck out before we saw him.  he did leave some droppings and a clue about where the gold was.
