One of my favorite writing lessons as a first grade teacher was writing how to catch a leprechaun. I loved to hear how the first graders would catch those little guys. Since, I am not in the classroom anymore, I thought the girls and I would make some leprechaun munch and try to catch our very own leprechaun. We had lots of fun making, eating, and brainstorming how to catch those tiny creatures.
Here is the “secret” recipe to catch a leprechaun:
- Crumbled pretzel sticks
- Green marshmallows from Lucky Charms
- Coconut M&M’s (Only green and white)
- Rice Chex cereal
- Green Sprinkles
- Add all ingredients into a plastic bag. Shake well!
This tasty munch not only makes a great snack for a leprechaun but it would make a cute little gift for a teacher or friend. Just print out the pdf file Printable Leprechaun Poem and stick on a gift bag or container.
After we made our Leprechaun Munch, we went on a leprechaun hunt around the house. We did more munching than exploring, of course!
Since we were having no luck seeing a leprecuaun, we decided to spoon some delicious munch out and leave it in the dinning room. A little later, Averie checked the munch and look what the leprechaun left in exchange for his tasty snack!
Her face was priceless. Averie was in shock to see her gold coins. It was a lot of fun! She now wants to be a leprechaun when she grows up. I tried to explain that it can’t happen, then I just let it go. I only a few more years of tricking and being playful with my girls.
Do leprechauns visit your house?
Do they leave treats or make messes?
