What a lucky family we were to spend St. Patrick's Day weekend with our BFF's. We drove 2 hours North to be with them and had the BEST time.
We squeezed 2 parties into less than 48 hours.
Sharing our St. Patrick's Day Breakfast party and the Hunt for the Treasure!
Simple table set up for the children. Using some tulips with a St. Patty's Day sign as the centerpiece.
We read this the night before which is what sparked the Leprechaun Trap making!
They gathered their supplies....
Set the trap - leaving some money and an enticing sign for the little green man...
Here is the HUGE chest of "gold" and goodies that they would find out was waiting for them in the morning.
You could tell he was HERE by the tiny green footprints he left!

In the morning....the children were all excited to see if they had trapped their very own Leprechaun.
They were very surprised to see that their money was missing, the trap was sprung but no little green man. However, a note/clue was left for them. This clue lead them to other clues around the house. The HUNT was on! (source of the clues)
Let the hunt for the GOLD begin!
The last clue had brought them back upstairs where they were just sleeping minutes ago...how did a the Leprechaun's treasure get in their bedroom? Oh the window was open just slightly...the prize was theirs!
They LOVED it and are still talking about it!
We then sat and ate our green pancakes and muffins! Enjoyed the company of each other and celebrated the day!
The children can't wait to do this again next year!
