Leprechaun Day

If you remember last St. Patrick's Day, the kids and I built an elaborate trap to catch a leprechaun and all we got was a huge stack of fake gold (really yummy chocolate), an elegant note and a bunch of pranks. So this year, Sam wanted to make sure our trap didn't look suspicious. This science project was his brainchild. Anabelle offered up her special rocks including the GOLD that she sifted in the Wild West on a preschool trip last year. We glued the small gold bits to a bigger rock or our plan wouldn't work, and then the family, um, scientifically labeled them.

Again, not to look suspicious, we needed something that looked sort of like a lamp decoration over the table.
Unfortunately, our plan still didn't work.

EWwwww. green slime all over our science project (the kids shouted Hooray as Mom hates slime) and a pile of gold - no, actually yummy chocolate covered caramels - I liked the other classy leprechaun last year better.
Happy kids. And one that's saying, "Got smoothie?"
