St. Patrick's Day at our House

After much deliberation, some of it rather loud and confrontational, the kids decided to make a Leprechaun House rather than a trap. I had told them that their trap shouldn't look like a trap if they wanted to catch him and this is what they came up with!

Check out the portrait on the walls, there is a fridge and stove on one end. They also wrote down the features of this place including food, a bed (the brick), the gold...they are definitely sales people in the making! The food is marshmallows from the Lucky Charms Cereal...sweet!

Well, it looks like our Leprechaun stopped by over the supper hour and got himself some grub!
But this is the closest we got to see him. Some portraits done in food!
The only gold at the end of our rainbow were Lucky Charms squares. We had to go to the grocery store on St. Patrick's Day especially for the Lucky Charms and marshmallows so we could make these!
And these...we didn't have any ice cream in the house! So we made Peppermint Milkshakes, something for everyone here.
Cheers to Patty O'Malley!I hope everyone had a fabulous St. Patrick's Day!
