Build a Leprechaun Trap
My daughter and her father just came back from a very enjoyable trip to Germany, so we didn’t even start on St Patrick’s Day yet. My favorite St Patrick’s day activities from the past year was when she designed and built this leprechaun trap.

3. I simply adore Mollymoo’s crafts (and “adore” is not the word I use lightly). I still want to make these leprechauns with my seven year old using her detailed leprechaun peg doll tutorial.

4. Back to the rainbows – Gift of Curiousity shares a super simple density rainbow experiment that I also hope to do here. I think it turned out rather well!Skittles-density-rainbow-Gift-of-Curiosity
5. Any holiday in our house means a lot of books with that holiday theme. Generation iKid is sharing 10 picture books for St Patrick’s Day, and I see a lot of our favorites on this list.
