Riley loves holidays, so the minute Valentine’s Day ended…we moved on to St. Patrick’s Day. We talked about four leaf clovers, our Irish roots, and what that pot of gold really contains (she guessed happiness – love her). But when she began peppering me with questions about leprechauns I realized that I didn’t really have any good answers at all.
So we did a little research. I am now officially fascinated by leprechauns and on a mission to correct their somewhat bad reputations. While they are known to enjoy an occasional practical joke, they are definitely not as mean as some might have us believe. They simply don’t like to be tricked by humans. Is that so wrong?
Anyway, by the end of our exhaustive research I came to the following conclusion: Leprechauns make a good metaphor. When you treat leprechauns with trickery and teasing, they trick and tease you back. When you treat leprechauns with kindness, they return the favor.
See you there!
P.s. Cute and easy craft included. Enjoy!
