#5 LEPRECHAUN MISCHIEF AKA HUGE MESS
True story.. Once upon a St. Patricks Day our kids went to CHURCH and guess what?…the Leprechauns had paid the singing room a visit. Chairs were strewn all over and it was a HOT MESS. All the kids were talking about the messes the leprechauns had made at their own houses too. On the way home from church the kids were so excited to run into the house to see the if the leprechauns had come to our house. Luckily our house was already a mess (their doing) and somehow they convinced theirselves it must have been the leprechauns. Thank goodness for messy houses. But if your house is clean, be sure to MESS IT UP! You don’t want to dissapoint your kids this day!
OR… Pull out the TEMPURA PAINT! When your kids get in the car, how magical would it be to turn on your wipers and have a whimsical rainbow appear!! You would definitely be WINNING! Mrs. Fields shows you how to achieve these RAINBOW WIPERS HERE.
