Leprechaun Hotel

The other day in Katelynn's class they talked about St. Patrick's Day and leprechauns. She was *so* excited, and told Emma & Michael all about leprechauns after school. She got really, really excited about needing to make a leprechaun hotel for them to sleep in., and got the other two on board with the project. A few things about the project:

* leprechauns love green and yellow, because they love gold. 
* Katelynn told me the rooms are going to be "fantastic".
* Michael was working on drawing some landscaping, including a bush, a cactus and "some other plant".
* Katelynn made a little bed, pillow, sheet and blanket. The leprechauns are going to sleep in the hotel for the night, then while they are gone during the day looking for more gold she is going to surprise them by making their beds for them.

The whole thing makes me laugh. It's funny to hear the way they think about things and all their ideas. At first I was hesitant to let them use a bunch of my craft supplies, but then I decided that what better way to use the supplies than by the kids using their imaginations and working diligently on a project they are so excited about?!

Once the hotel is finished I will have to give you a grand tour here on the blog. Here are some shots of the kids working on it.

They really, really wanted to learn more about leprechauns, so I suggested we have a pizza & movie night Friday and watch "Darby O'Gill and the Little People". They are so excited about it, and they kept pestering me about the date so much, that I had to write it on the calendar so they could see how many days away the 'party' is.
