I explained my “story” to her and decided to show her a picture of a leprechaun because she’s a visual learner. Note: look up a picture of a leprechaun BEFORE your child sees the computer…you DO NOT want them seeing images from the 1993 horror film or worse, Leprechaun’s in the Hood. I can not believe I just typed that.
Anyway…she really could have cared less and totally doesn’t get it. But this is the same child that HATES Santa so what are you going to do?
Right before bed I told her we needed to set the trap in a good place where the leprechaun would see it. We decided the foyer would be a great spot because I believe these tiny men choose the front door as their entrance.
We caught a leprechaun! But he ate through our trap and escaped. Never fear…he accidentally left his hat, jewelry and a few gold (chocolate) coins. He also left his pet duck. LOL. Layla was so excited to see this and although I don’t think she really got it…it was pretty fun! I can’t wait to see how she reacts next year!
