Leprechaun Treat Boxes and Games

 Happy St. Patrick's Day! 

Here were already in the middle of March.  While the year feels like it is flying, it does mean that spring is right around the corner.   Winter was a weird one for us this year, we did not get the snow that we normally do in both Ohio and Michigan.  Michigan was slammed with storms the last three  weekends, but thankfully I was still able to go visit this month. 

St. Patrick's Day is a fun holiday to celebrate. How could it not be with tricky elves, lots of green, colorful rainbows, sometimes adult beverages, and shiny things. LOL! As I am typing this post, I am wearing my leggings covered in rainbows, shamrocks and pots of gold.  

St. Patrick's Day is a good time to make some crafts.  One of my favorite crafts to make is  my Leprechaun Treat Boxes.  They are made with cardboard tubes, paint, paper, and a little bit of glue. They can be filled with colorful gold candy.  If you would like to see the full tutorial on how to make them you can find that post  here.

One of our favorite things to do with our kids on St. Patrick's Day was to set leprechaun traps in hopes of catching a one, and receiving their pot of gold. While I was not able to get a leprechaun trap kit put together in time, I have several new St. Patrick's Day items over in my Etsy Shop.  If you would like a scavenger hunt where you can look for leprechauns, you might like my leprechaun hunt.   In this printable game you get three leprechauns that you can hide together or separately.  The second game which has been really popular in my shop this year is my Find the Pot of Gold game.  In this game you use the clues to find a hidden pot of gold.   Both games are a lot of fun, and good for kids of all ages.  

Do you have fun plans for St. Patrick's Day?  I would love hear about them if you do.
