Despite our best efforts (and our new and improved trap) they eluded us once again.
We made some improvements on last year’s trap.
Started with the versatile shoe box.
Everyone had a job (even if they had no idea what was going on)
Not a leprechaun hand.
We had to lure them into the shoebox which was cleverly disguised as a Leprechaun Hotel.
We accomplished this by setting up a ‘leprechaun nap station’ outside and then leaving signs that said “more beds inside’.
The leprechauns have NO idea what they’re up against.
Spike’s sign for the front door. You have to get them in the house somehow.
Welcome little leprechauns. Put your feet up on Barbie’s fainting couch and take a load off.
What? You need more beds? Please come inside.
Don’t worry leprechauns, the back IS NOT a trap door that will cause you to fall into the clothesbasket and be trapped and forced to give up your gold….
Couldn’t bait the trap till she went to bed because we wanted to avoid an epic meltdown when she realized the skittles were for the little green guys and not her.
His confidence in the trap was pretty high. His only regret is that we could not incorporate the lego helicopter into the scheme somehow.
Has the gold spent already.
The bait. Skittles and green apple.
Now hurry up little leprechaun hunters and go to bed so mama can have a glass of wine and watch the Middle.
Is Buddy eating one of them?
Looks like they got into the candy jar.
And the Cocoa Pebbles. Ooooooh. They must’ve been MAD.
They dropped some gold coins in their hasty escape! How lucky that they dropped a number of coins that is divisible by 3!
Can’t believe they got out of our trap again!
Hope they didn’t toilet paper the kids into their rooms…….
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Don’t get pinched!!!
