Lucky the Leprechaun Strikes Again!

St. Patrick’s Day is not just about the green food.  Leprechauns are famous for making their presence known on the lucky day.  Add a little more holiday spirit this coming Tuesday by turning some sneaky leprechauns loose in your own home.

On the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, once your kid’s are tucked in their beds with visions of green men dancing in their heads, then it’s time for those silly leprechauns to work. Tip over a kitchen chair or two, toss a few couch cushions on the floor, turn pictures hanging on the wall upside down, jumble up toys in your kids room and whatever else you can think of to showcase the leprechauns behavior.    Don’t forget to add a few drops of green food coloring to turn your toilet water green on the night before St. Patrick’s Day. When your kids wake in the morning, they will be excited to discover that the leprechauns have turned the water green in celebration of the holiday.   (It won’t stain the toilet bowl.)  Don’t forget to leave a trail of chocolate coins for your child to discover wherever the leprechauns have caused a stir.

Place a few coloring tablets in the screen of the kitchen faucet. The Fizzy Tints tablets are small coloring tablets used to color the water at bath time. Don’t use Easter egg dye tablets because they stain!  Go to the following website for complete details:

It also has great ideas for further tricks and even instructions on how to make a trap for those pesky green men.

Create footprints out of green construction paper, to leave all over your house where Lucky the Leprechaun has been spreading his mischief.  You can use gold coins, chocolate coins, gold glitter or sparkle, or even green shamrocks for laying trails as to where Lucky has struck next.  HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!!
