For St Patrick's Day the Little's and I made Leprechaun Traps. One was made to look like a rock wall with a rainbow on top of the "mountain." While the other was a top hat, what leprechaun could resist a good hat?! We attached a ladder, added sprigs of green and jewels to lure him in. I got this idea, just like most of my crafts, from Family Fun magazine. It's the only magazine I subscribe to. If you are a mother who is looking for ordinary, yet somehow amazing crafts to do with your kids because you are not crafty or imaginative enough to come up with your own, this is the magazine for you. Those of you who already have "it" down, have no need for the help. Leave it to those of us who are impaired. Really, Family Fun is the bestest!!!!
Shaunee O'Shannon Shalalee, we caught one, but he was a feisty fellow. He left a note in each trap. T-Bird commented on how "snappy" he was. Apparently, leprechauns or little people don't like to be trapped. Who knew?
I am a super blessed Momma. All of my kids do school work, and I don't have to fight and try to busy the littles. I am oh so thankful for this, and they are so cute when they work, aren't they??
And then another Family Fun inspiration, I made this rainbow cake. Isn't it great?! I had already planned to make this cake for my little men, but it turned out even better when our friends the Sun-Kissed Savages came over. Speaking of "boy" friends. We've not been around these guys in such a long time.
