This past week we had a leprechaun hanging out in our bathroom!! He did all sorts of tricky things to the kids’ baths, and they LOVED it. Check back all week for fun St. Patrick’s themed bath times for kids!!
The bath time when the leprechaun first appeared, he left a little riddle for the kids to figure out…
…and he filled the tub with all kinds of green and St. Patrick’s Day themed items.
There were gold coins, shamrocks, necklaces, a rainbow bracelet, green stones, green letters, green glittery pom poms, and so much more!!
He even left a few special items for the kids to wear…
The kids had a fun time hunting to see what all was in the tub…
…and they filled an entire bucket full of crazy things the leprechaun had thrown in our tub.
After awhile, I read the kids the riddle the leprechaun had left them: “You’ll never guess me lucky color!” and showed them the backwards letters the leprechaun had written.
I gave them a mirror and showed them how to look in the mirror to figure out what letter it really was.
Then they’d find the correct letter on one of the floating foam shamrocks and stick it on top of the backwards letter.
They took turns until they had figured out each tricky letter.
My almost 5-year-old was able to read the word “green” when they finished decoding the word! They thought it was funny!!
If you want to see what other tricks our leprechaun pulled, you’ll have to check back this week to see more of his antics!! 🙂
