This post isn’t food-related, but I wanted to share the fun we had yesterday morning.
Carter decided a few nights ago that he wanted to make a leprechaun trap and said all he needed was construction paper and tape. I gave him his tools and left him to work on it. When he was done, I asked where he got the idea for the trap and he said it was in the Night Before St. Patrick’s Day book Grandma gave him last St. Patrick’s Day. A YEAR AGO. This child remembered seeing it on one of the pages in a book he hasn’t read in a year. Wish I had that memory!
Here’s the trap after the leprechaun visited:
This is what the note says:
The leprechaun left him some trinkets, a coloring book, a big pen (that he’s already broken by taking it apart and losing a piece from inside), and a plastic green mug (which rang up as a beer mug at the register).
So how did our feisty little creature escape the carefully-planned trap? He burst through the back wall!
Carter closed his eyes because it was first thing in the morning and he hates bright lights, especially when I use flash. And he just got that TMNT sword yesterday so he had to use it to hold the trap because it’s practically surgically attached to his hand.
Did you do or make anything fun this weekend?
