Leprechaun Mischief and . . . a little Freebie!
So an old childhood friend contacted me yesterday to find out my 'secret' for making leprechaun feet. I'm am completely baffled. My secret? What? Doesn't she believe that leprechauns made those little footie prints?
Of course, she had seen my pictures of the my classroom and home where the leprechauns visted last year.
You can imagine with a name like McGuire and three small boys with names like MaGill, McCoy and MacKale that the leprechauns are particularly fond of us. They are!
Those little buggers literally TRASH my house
and my classroom
and pull all kinds of shenanigans.
We try to catch them. My boys have even claimed to have seen the little men, but, alas, we've never caught one. The little fellas do feel some remorse because they always leave us a little something for the trouble of cleaning up after them. So I guess it's not all bad.
All this thinking about leprechaun feet (drop me a comment if you want to know how it's done) has me wondering what those little men in green will pull this year. I thought I would send a little lucky freebie your way in hopes that the leprechauns will be kinder to me this year.
As an added note, if you check out my blog post from 3/7/12 you can find out how to make those little leprechaun feet. Enjoy!
