Now, there is another video of Batman deciding they need to take all the grass out because we don’t want to kill the leprechauns, but I don’t want to take forever on all these posts, because I’ve given myself a one hour time limit this week. Too much to do….. Clean house, make a costume for me and Princess for tomorrow, clean out the car. Way too much to do, oh and try out the surprise I have for later in the week……
Here’s the essentially finished trap:
It’s a circle of bricks with two bricks on top. A piece of string is going over the side for the leprechaun to be able to climb up. On top is the green water for it to drink. They were quite sure this trap would work. They also weren’t too clear on the whole leave the trap along, because they spent the rest of the afternoon watching the trap. They obviously haven’t heard a watched trap is never sprung……..
Well, the next morning we went to check, and obviously we hadn’t caught all of them because those pesky guys had turned out french toast green. We look in there, and he was kind enough to explain he got out using the provided rope, but that the green drink tasted really good. So, he left us chocolate coins, and the kids were happy.
Admittedly, it’s a bit of a non-traditional science experiment, but the kids loved it, and I had a lot of fun asking them “why?” for once.
