Leprechauns and Spring

This week at our house we will finish celebrating St. Patrick's Day and jump into Spring full force.  Our caterpillars have also arrived, so I have a few ideas to learn about them.

Leprechaun traps, leprechaun rocks, and Shamrocks
We were a little late to make our leprechaun trap (we did that Sunday night).  H was super interested, but dad kind of diverted it into making a squirrel trap.  So we ended up with 2 traps, both half effort.  But at least they were excited and doing something together.  Then they went to bed and the leprechaun left a note saying they would have to be more clever than that to catch him.  That naughty leprechaun also left green pee in the toilet and a pile of leprechaun rocks.  The boys spent the morning 'washing' their leprechaun rocks.  Later we plan to make these:

Caterpillars and butterflies
We checked out a bunch of books at the library.  I want to do this life cycle craft this week.  


Playdate
Our home school friends are coming over this week to help us get our garden going.  We are going to be putting in some sunflowers along our fence and reading the book The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle

Its a busy week here and I am watching a couple extra kids for Spring Break...all boys!!!  Wish me luck!
I'll try to post an update at the end of the week and let you know how it all went, with pictures of course!
