Saint Patrick’s Day is a little more than a week away, and you might find that you have a desire to invite a leprechaun to your house for some shenanigans. I have had several people contact me lately to see how I managed Seamus the Leprechaun did the Cool Whip trick last year. It made me want to talk a little about some fun, innocent Saint Patrick’s Day fun.
I’m not a fan of pranks or mean spirited tricks, so I was very happy last year when Seamus’ tricks were all nice and fun. Nobody got hurt or embarrassed, just lots of giggles and scratching of heads to figure out the tricks.
Seamus visited our house, toilet papered the living room, left a note, put shoes on the piano, and hid lots of chocolate coins. He also tricked us by making it so that when we opened our sealed container of Cool Whip and stirred it, it turned green! These were all wildly fun for the children.
This year, I hope that Seamus decides to visit again. I suspect if he visits again, there will be more toilet papering and hidden chocolate coins. I suspect there will probably be another crazy note.
Some other things that may or may not happen if Seamus stops by again:
Lots of Green Balloons
Some fun assortment of Saint Patrick’s Day goodies
Some kind of reminder that it actually is a Feast Day
Any other ideas for kooky ideas that are just fun and not harmful or embarrassing that Seamus might consider doing?
