Tricky Leprechaun

If you visited a few days ago, you may recall the Leprechaun Trap project my son did for school.  (If you didn't read it, go here.)

Well, yesterday was the big day to take it to school and give a presentation.  Unfortunately, there was a small problem.  It fell apart during transportation.

"Just put it back together when you get to school.  You'll be fine," I said.

I emailed the teacher a couple of pictures of the finished product to help with the reassembly. She thanked me, and I thought no more about it.

When the boy got off the school bus that afternoon, he had a bag of Legos in his hand.

"Did you give your presentation?" I asked.

He shook his head.  "No.  One of the parts is missing.  The one that holds up the pulley system. I have to figure something else out and take it to school tomorrow."

"It probably just fell out of the bag and landed on the floor."

"No, Mama.  Someone took it."

"Who would've taken it?" I asked.

"A Leprechaun."

Of course.  Those tricky Leprechauns!

    1. Haha! I think the Leprechaun was just a good excuse to cover up the fact that he lost it. ;0)

    1. I guess the Leprechauns figured if they destroyed the trap, they'd get the gold.

    1. Yes. They're scoping things out, so they don't fall into any traps!

  10. Oh no! You better come up with a better trap so that you can trap the leprechauns and get that missing piece back!

    1. We may have to work out a deal - a little gold for the missing piece!

  11. They are always up to something. They took the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow.

    1. I'm sorry. If we ever trap the pesky little things, I'll confront them about what they did to you, and make sure they return your gold!
