Happy St. Patrick's Day

Merrick's class had a St. Patrick's Day party and these were the centerpieces I brought for the kids. Merrick helped me paint the ceramic planters and then we filled them with gold wrapped rolos and made rainbows out of pipe cleaners. They were a big hit.
Every year we put out a trap the night before St. Patrick's Day to try and catch our friendly leprechaun unfortunately every year he somehow gets away. He's pretty sneaky but this year not only did he leave us a few gifts he also....

played a few tricks on the boys. Memphis got some green colored glasses

while Merrick got a green mustache and goatee.

The best part was that I sent Merrick to school with his mustache and told him to just tell people that the leprechaun played a trick on him. His teachers got a kick out that.

Our friendly little leprechaun also turned our milk green and left us Lucky Charms and gold chocolate coins.
