To catch a Leprechaun...

My friend Tonya has 2 boys, Alonzo who is 5 and Roman who is almost 3. In the spirit of St. Patrick's day they have been on the mission to catch a Leprechaun. Tonya is such an awesome mom to come up with some creative ways to try to "catch" the little guy.

here is the trap set up underneath their kitchen table...

notice the green M&M's as "bait" for the leprechaun...

when the M&M's didn't work, Alonzo decided they needed something better to catch the leprechaun. Tonya suggested to bring out the "big guns" with these awesome cool mint Oreo cookie balls that P is for Party shared on their FB page...

This morning the boys will find that they didn't quite catch the Leprechaun, but he left behind some glittery hand prints, a scarf (that she made with felt), gold coins, and some goodies for the boys to enjoy on St.Patrick's day!

Tonya, thanks for sharing this fun little game with us! I am definitely going to do this next year!


  1. What a cute idea! I think I will be stealing this next year as well :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is PRECIOUS! I've been trying to wrack my brain for something like this. Perfect!

  3. How cute! The boy's school did something similar--the Leprechaun made a "mess" in each of their rooms with green glitter and footprints and left golden chocolate coins. The kids thought it was the best thing ever and talked about it for the rest of the day.

  4. Oh my gosh.. that's awesome! I had never thought to do anything for St Patricks day, brilliant! x
