Preparing for the Leprechauns

Saturday morning we started getting ready for the Leprechauns to come.  The kids were finally all feeling better but it was raining outside so we were still stuck in the house.  We decided to get some sacks and deorate them for our leprechaun hunt.  Each year on St. Patrick's Day the leprechauns come to our house and make a treasure hunt for the kids.  It starts with the kids going outside and calling the Leprechauns.  After they have called them they have to run in the house and hide  kids aren't allowed to see the leprechauns.  While the kids are hiding the leprchauns come and hide treasures for them. They leave clues for the kids to help them find the "pot of gold."  When the leprechauns leave the kids come out and begin the hunt.  It's always tons of fun and the kids look forward to it every year.  Anyways, to help the leprechauns out, each one decorated their treasure bag for the hunt.  It was a god way to pass a rainy Saturday.
