So if you have been following along you know that we have been trying to capture a Leprechaun. The Leprechauns at our house have proved to be quite tricky! They always seem to take the bait out of our traps and have been pulling silly tricks on us in return.
Yesterday, they left notes around the house for the kids to find.
But last night. Last night takes the cake! Caleb decided that his Leprechaun Bait (a gold chocolate coin!) would be better off eaten then left out. When the Leprechauns came to collect their gold I don’t think they were happy! When the kids woke up they found this note:
The older kids get up before Caleb in the morning for school. You should have seen them running to the bathroom a little worried about finding green hair. When they realized the coast was clear (for them!) it didn’t take long for them to run and wake up Caleb. And find him looking a little like this
The look on his face was perfect. The kids are yelling “The Leprechauns turned your hair green!!” and of course he reaches up to touch his hair…I guess to see if it feels green. :)
Then, when he had about 10 seconds to actually wake up he runs to the mirror and yep. There it is. Green hair. He couldn’t believe it happened while he was asleep.
Good thing today just happened to be Crazy Hair Day at school! :)
If the Leprechauns at your house are planning on pulling this prank here are a few tips:
– THIS is the hairspray our Leprechaun used.
-It’s best to have your Leprechaun wake up early and spray rather than at night. Between the tossing and turning and just number of hours at night by morning it will fade.
– BUT it fades…and washes out. Non-permanent. Good stuff. Plus, it washed out of the pillow case too (I washed it twice).
– The stuff stinks when you first spray it. Caleb woke up with just a few concentrated spots of green. And the Leprechaun left the bottle for us to finish touching up. Plus he sprayed on spots that would be hard to roll around on the pillow case and rub off. But that depends on the way your child sleeps!
