Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Maddie is officially decked out for the day. I found this a couple months ago and couldn't resist getting it for her. Some of my jewelry loving madness has genetically gone to her; she loves shirts that have some type of sparkle.
Jake's class all created Leprechaun traps. Mike, Jake and I worked on his a couple weeks ago. Jake drew a plan for us and Mike did his best to help make that actual plan. We used a shoebox, eyelet things, string and tape and were on our way....
He also used some wooden biscuits to wrap up in tinfoil because Leprechauns love shiny things - these pieces were the bait!
Jake and Mike were all over using any tools they could and even managed to go into the garage and use a drill for the shiny biscuits. Then they came back in to use a screwdriver. Note Jake's safety glasses:
I'm not sure they'll catch any leprechauns. When Maddie did this in first grade those pesky leprechauns made a mess of the first grade rooms! Chairs were toppled over and papers were lying all over the place - even a ceiling tile had been moved! Good luck to Jake's class this year!
