Can you catch the sneaky leprechaun?

St. Paddy's day is tomorrow and we have had a little leprechaun sneaking around the last few days! We set a trap to catch him so we can get all of his GOLD!
We took an empty tissue box and covered it in green construction paper then we used a skewer (also could use a Popsicle stick) to prop it up. To "bait" the little guy in we used pennies! Easy enough right? We shall see tomorrow!

FREE Butterfly Garden Starter Kit From National Wildlife Federation

The National Wildlife Federation is offering a FREE Butterfly Garden Starter Kit for anyone who snaps a photo of themselves (or their kids) making the American Sign Language sign for butterfly. We cannot wait for ours to arrive. Both of my kiddos are butterfly fanatics! We are already preparing an area to plant our garden! 

From nwf.org: 

Your butterfly garden starter kit will include:

  • Seed packet with native milkweed or a flowering nectar plant
    • Monarchs drink nectar from flowers and their caterpillars eat only milkweed
  • A list of milkweed and nectar plants native to your region
    • Ask your garden center for the best plants on our list to add to your garden
  • Ranger Rick Nature Notebook
    • Observe your garden and the butterflies, caterpillars, and other wildlife that make it their new home!
  • Butterfly Heroes Sticker and Poster
    • Show your Butterfly Hero Pride!
