Leprechaun tricks and pranks for kids on St. Patrick's day

Do you celebrate St. Patrick's day?  We do!  In fact every year a naughty little leprechaun visits us and plays tricks and pranks on us and causes all kinds of troubles!  Over the years our naughty little leprechaun has created quite the mess.  Every year he does something different but without fail, when we wake up St. Patrick's day morning we are greeted with all kinds of sneaky tricks!

In an attempt to entice our sneaky little friend we made the leprechaun some green cookies in hopes that he would behave and be nice to us.

We also have a naughty leprechaun that comes to my classroom.  In my St. Patrick's day thematic unit plan you will find ways to engage your students as they get riddles and messages from a leprechaun, build traps, create wanted posters, a class book and much more!

  1. What a fun idea! It reminds me a little of elf on the shelf. It must have been fun to wake up each morning and see what mischief was waiting for them! :)
