Does your house ever see leprechaun tricks? A few years ago our Family Fun Magazine had ideas for leprechaun Traps. The kids searched through the ideas and decided on this one.
We made some gold pieces out of candy wrappers and instead of a wooden ladder we used one from a toy fire truck. The kids were quite surprised when they woke up and found that the tricky leprechaun had been to the trap but escaped.
St Patrick Leprechaun Tricks
Here are a few other fun tricks we share every St. Pat’s Day that your kids might enjoy as well. All you need is some green food dye, a green marker, and sleeping children!!
1. CHANGE THE MILK COLOR
A few days before St. Patrick’s Day, I observe the milk carton and when I am close to the end, I open another carton. I save the almost empty one to add green food dye the night before so the kids will be served green milk on st. pat’s morning.
2.DYE TO TOILET BOWL
We also leave some green food dye in the toilet bowl. I love the addition of the foot prints on this photo.
3. MOVE THINGS AROUND THE HOUSE
To show off the mischief of the leprechaun,many objects are misplaced and upside down in the house as well.
4. LUCKY CHARMS
Leave out a bowl of Lucky charms or sprinkles where the leprechaun walked near your trap
5. SPIKE YOUR KIDS CEREAL BOWLS…
Ok, not the spiking you are thinking of. Add a few dots of food coloring to the bottom of a cereal bowl, add cereal to milk. The milk will turn green while they are eating.
6. THE OLD OREO SWAP
Replace all of your Oreos with green filled Oreos.
6. HAVE THE LEPRECHAUN LEAVE A KISS
Lastly, if I know the kids have been asleep for a while, I leave a little green marker mark on their face or hands and say the leprechaun has left you with a kiss.
And Make sure your little leprechauns are dressed for the occasion. Here is my latest festive headband creation.
This is one holiday that there are no gifts just good clean fun and mischief. Love to hear what mischief your leprechaun has done at your house.
Get prepared for April Fools Day Pranks while you are at it.
