Happy St. Patricks Day ya Leprechaun!

At school they received an assignment to make a leprechaun trap to set out the night before St. Patricks Day. Dominic and I had a lot of fun with this one and ALMOST got one. Actually, according to the note that the leprechaun Olaf left.... he did get caught, but luckily (for him) a leprechaun friend was nearby and helped him out otherwise we surely would have had him! He left Dominic 2 quarters in place of the 2 pennies that Dominic put out.

Its a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow with a green rope for the leprechaun to climb up and slide into the pit of doom to his dismay that was NOT a pot of gold. It was a pretty creative trap I thought.
I like how Dominic started to write GOLD on each circle that he drew. He quickly decided that the leprechaun would know it is gold and he didn't need to write it on ALL of them. hee hee.
Argggggggh....Dominic's gonna get you!

Well, it was guided we'll say. I suggested the materials....and put a few ideas into his head but he made all the decisions. It was fun.
