This was a perfect activity for a friendly Friday! We hid a note and a sheet of shamrock stickers inside a book we had checked out from the library for our St. Patrick's theme. We hope it brings a very happy smile to some youngster's face next year when they check out the same book.
And for those wondering about our house leprechaun - YES! We did catch him - scroll down to read how...
After several mischievous days, Dooligan was finally caught and had to hand over his gold (chocolate covered gold coins). To his credit, he seemed a cheerful chap as you can see from the picture.
How did we catch him? Why Miss A decided to make him a wee house out of a cardboard box. We made a little bed for him inside and found him sleeping there the next morning! I guess the poor little guy was so worn out from all his sneaky pranks that he didn't hear the pitter patter of little feet outside the box house and couldn't rouse himself in time to escape.
Sadly, Dooligan had a little mishap later on so next year he may look a bit different - or a lot. Let's just say I'll be on the hunt for a new unbreakable leprechaun (preferably stuffed)...
