Top o' the mornin' to ya!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today the children came dressed in green (even green hair!) with a little skip in their step and gleam in their eye! Each child brought in a leprechaun trap designed with his or her family. As the traps came in this morning the children were a'buzz with excitement. A couple even looked behind doors and under tables to see if they could catch sight of one of those elusive little green men! The children took their traps to their tables and shared with their table group how the trap worked. Enjoy some of our prize designs below!

As the children went to lunch, they set their traps hoping to catch one of the wee little men, because we had word that their had been a leprechaun sighting at Chets Creek! Lo and behold! - when we came back from lunch those pesky little leprechauns had turned over chairs and played tricks all over the room. They had taken all of the gold from our traps and left a gold candy chocolate coin instead, but we didn't catch a single leprechaun! Our wee ones enjoyed the fun and fantasy of the day! Now those little green men are gone for another year!
