There is no St. Patrick’s Day without a mischievous leprechaun, right?
Leprechaun tricks make for such a fun day and they can be incredibly easy! No need to build a Pinterest-perfect leprechaun trap, unless you’re up for the challenge.
Check out these 5 easy leprechaun tricks you can play on your kids this St. Patrick’s Day!
#1 Change to Green Lightbulbs
Go all out or only do a few, but this is such an easy surprise.
Watch your kids’ faces when they flick the switch on St. Patricks Day morning and see the first mischievous thing the leprechaun did.
This is sure to get the day off to a fun start!
Keep in mind, the green light is a bit dark.
#2 Turn the Milk Green
Simply add some green food coloring to the milk and make breakfast a lot of fun!
You can change the whole jug in the fridge, secretly add some drops at the bottom of the cereal bowl or their cup and watch the color change as you pour.
Regardless, this is sure to make them smile.
#3 Green Toilet Water
While you’re changing the color of the milk, you might as well change the color of the toilet water.
You can do this with the Crayola color tabs, but you can also do this one many different ways!
Add some leprechaun feet, draw a rainbow on the lid, apply the food coloring underneath the rim so they see it change to green as they flush.
#4 Green Sink
I think we have a theme here…
While you’re in the bathroom, stop up the sink and change the color to green.
Simple Easy Creative made it into a whole leprechaun self-care scene with a note and razor.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Happy St. Patricks Day!
I hope you’re able to try at least one of these and they bring joy to your home.
Don’t forget the best part of all…
Eating some mint Oreos!
