St. Patty's Day Blog Hop

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Welcome to the St. Patty's Day Blog Hop! If you just got here from Candace your in the right spot, if not please start at the beginning

My project today is something I made with my almost 3 year old Son.
A Leprechaun Trap!




Here are a few pics of Vincent decorating the box with popsicle sticks and foam shamrocks.


The outside of the box was all decorated by Vincent, I just helped him with the glue.


We made a pathway with some rainbow popsicle sticks and used pompoms around the border.


I found the mini hat at dollar tree, we filled it with some Leprechaun Bait(Lucky Charms). I hot glued a couple sparkly shamrocks down, Vincent kept calling them trees. 


Here's Vincent getting the trap all ready by putting some of the bait in the pathway.


We didn't end up catching that darn Leprechaun because he was just to fast for us. But he did leave Vincent some Chocolate Gold Coins in the hat. You can see the foot prints he left behind as he ran out.

I hope you enjoyed our project!
