Top O’ the morning to you! Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? It is a bank (public) holiday here in Northern Ireland, but it isn’t as big a holiday as it is in the Republic of Ireland. St. Patrick does have connections here in the ‘North’ (which until less than 100 years ago was a united Ireland). Mt. Slemish is where he was held captive and was a shepherd for six years.
There are many myths surrounding St. Patrick, and about Ireland in general. One such myth is the existence of leprechauns. Some people truly believe in leprechauns, as well as fairies, but how to prove it? One way could be to build a leprechaun trap and try to catch a leprechaun!
I’ve always wanted to try this, as there are so many versions that are possible!
Do you believe in leprechauns or fairies? Let me know about it in the comments below.
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured 34 Dr. Seuss Activities. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
Mosswood Connections has the best leprechaun trap I’ve seen! She’s not only invoked the imaginations of the neighbourhood children, but she has local jewelers in on this elaborate scheme! I absolutely LOVE it! It has me thinking who we can involve to do something fun like this for next year. You have to read the story to appreciate it.
Moms and Munchkins gives all the details of how they created this fun leprechaun trap by enticing the wee guy with gold coins. This would be perfect if the great outdoors isn’t so cooperative for a garden trap.
I like this use for up-cycing K-cups by Domain of The Mad Mommy! Cute and sweet all at once, and would be sure to catch the eye of a leprechaun!
