Leprechaun tricks were very popular in our house as the kids were growing up. You never knew quite what they would do from year to year. This post was originally written in 2008 (gosh the kids look so young). I wanted to re-post it for those of you looking for some leprechaun tricks to step up your game. My kiddos still talk about this one 5 years later.
Those tricky leprechauns somehow turned all the water in our faucets green this AM! The toilets flushed green water, too!
It was a big mystery for a while but then the boys started to figure bits and pieces of it out. They guessed that the Leprechauns must have put green paint or something in the faucets. After a lot of fun and teasing I brought out the fizzy tablets from Steve Spangler that does this.
They had fun mixing the colors…Carter did not know that yellow and blue make green…I just assumed he learned that in Kindergarten (maybe he was absent that day, lol). Connor remembered back to 4th grade where I taught him chromatography and made black with the primary colors. Thank you Leprechauns for the fun color reminder and for leaving us extra fizzy tabs to play with! 😉
Leprechaun Tricks: New Ideas
A lot has changed since 2008 but my love of Steve Spangler Science hasn’t. Seriously, great company, great people and no I don’t work for them but I do sneak things out of their office quite a bit, like mannequin heads, but that is totally another story for another time. Funny that the original part of this post was written long before I lived in Denver and knew them personally.
Steve assembled a great team of Leprechaun Specialists here to give you some more ideas.
Honestly, I have a funny feeling this is going to be the only Leprechaun trick that happens this year. The boys still look forward to a little goofiness for them.
