St. Patty’s Day Tricks

Last year was the first year I, um, our Leprechaun really went all out on St. Patrick’s Day.  First, he turned the water in all our toilets green.  He was going to turn the milk green too but I, um, I mean *he* forgot about it. 

IMG_0688After the kids left for school, the pesky leprechaun toilet papered their bedrooms and scattered gold chocolate coins around!  The kids thought this was the best. thing. ever.

Family Fun’s website has some cool ideas for traps to try and catch the mischievous leprechauns.  I think I might try one of these with the kids this year and see if they can “catch” him.

Do you have a leprechaun?  What pranks does he pull?

National Wildlife Week

March 15-21 is National Wildlife Week.  If you visit the National Wildlife Week website, they have lots of outside activities you can do with the kids. 

You can print a Family Activity Passport which has different activities for you to do with the kids on each day of the week.  (You have to do a super short survey first)  The passport is customized to your area as well.

The goal is to get kids outside for an extra hour observing wildlife, doing outdoor activities and maybe some good old fashioned games!  There’s even a photo contest for kids!

For more outside activities you can do with the kids, check out this page.  And mark your calendars for the Great American Backyard Campout on June 26th.  (We did this last year and it was tons of fun!)
