After having so much fun last week making Leprechaun traps with the kidlets, I’ve been bitten by the crafting bug! With Easter coming up, the entire family got hopping this weekend with a fun and easy “strings of spring” craft project. We created garlands made of colorful plastic eggs that we turned into a variety of bunnies and chicks.
Last week my son’s kindergarten teacher sent home a note to all the parents. Apparently my son’s classroom has been invaded by a mischievous little Leprechaun who has been disrupting the classroom such as knocking over chairs and leaving books out! In order to catch the leprechaun, the class is going to put out traps to try to get his pot of gold! All the children were asked to use their cleverness, ingenuity and of course, some help from mom and dad, to make their own leprechaun trap and bring it to school this week.
After doing a little research on Pinterest – my son and I came up with the basic idea/design for his trap and we hit the craft store for supplies. We spent part of yesterday morning working on his masterpiece. Here’s his finished trap, not too shabby!
