Thanks to Angela for the tip about the fun website. There are some great ideas for kid crafts and family fun on http://www.familyfun.com/ We used an idea for St. Patrick's day. It is the magic treasure box. We took an empty box and decorated the whole thing in green stuff and set it out in the moonlight on the night before St. Patrick's day. Legend has it that the leprechauns will fill a moonlit empty box with treasure and then hide it. Wherever they go, they leave a green trail behind them. So, when the kids woke up the next morning, they went outside and, lo and behold, the box was gone!!! And there was a trail that looked remarkably like watered down paint with glitter sprinkled on top. odd. Anyway, they were able to find it and it had been filled with coins and chocolate coins! Conclusion, leprechauns are real.
