|This year's version of the Leprechaun Trap|
Since last year's Leprechaun Trap (http://craptasticcrafts.blogspot.com/2010/06/leprechaun-trap.html) was so much fun we decided to do it again this year!
You will need:
- Empty tissue box (Again, good thing St. Patrick's Day comes during cold season!)
- Green paint (plus other colors, if desired)
- Flat piece of cardboard for base. (We used a portion from a cereal box.)
- Gold glitter paint
- St. Patrick's Day stickers
- Cotton balls
- Pipe Cleaners in all the colors of the rainbow
- Glue gun
Ahhh, glitter glue. Just when I thought I had lost Elliott to the Wii, glitter glue brings him right back. E had no desire to paint the box or base green, but after glittering up the rocks, he decided to paint some other colors onto the box, hence the dripping blood look. He was really into placing the stickers on and insisted on going through the whole sheet. (So much for saving some for next year!)
My favorite part? On his own, Elliott came up with the idea to place the rainbow and clouds over the hole so that the leprechaun wouldn't see the hole and would, hopefully, fall in. That's using your noggin, Kid!
I love glitter glue! I really liked painting the rocks. Putting stickers on the trap is fun. I think we are going to trap a leprechaun but I hope he doesn't get scared if he falls in the hole. Maybe we should put a light in there for him....can we do that?
