Trick the kids! 8 Leprechaun pranks you haven’t seen before.
Have you been-there-done-that with most of the leprechaun tricks out there? We’ve got some good ones that are proven to elicit giggles and glee! Check them out and show your kids what that naughty leprechaun has been up to!
#1 Gold Coins in Shoes
That mischievous leprechaun goes everywhere– even inside your shoes! Leave some cold coins (plastic) inside your kids shoes and they’ll be in for a surprise when they’re ready to head out the door!
#2 Green Lunch
Send your kids to school with boxed lunch made up of exclusively green food– apples, celery, green jello, spinach wrap sandwich– the kookier, the better!
#3 Leprechaun Tattoos while they Sleep
Personally, I was always too chicken to steal the tooth from under my kids’ pillow for fear of them waking up–but if your kids are deep sleepers, sneak some shamrock tattoos on their arms or legs while they sleep. When they wake up, they’ll know the Leprechaun has been up to his old tricks!
#4 Rainbow Windshield
Have you ever seen a rainbow automatically appear across your windshield? It’s him, the leprechaun. He’s been here!
Squeeze out a row of acrylic paints in ROYGBIV order and then turn on your wipers ONE time. This is a one shot-deal but how fun for the kids to see an instant rainbow happen!
#5 Green Water coming out the faucet!
This one’s a real hoot and seriously ups the ante on the old green-water-in-the-toilet trick. It’s as simple as buying some colored fizzy tablets (you can sometimes find these at Toys R’Us as colored bath tablets or online). Do NOT use the Easter egg coloring tablets, those stain! See here how to turn the kitchen faucet water green and get some awed faces from your kids.
#6 Streamer Traps
Your little ones will have to break through these streamers just to get out of their bedroom– easy and super fun!
#7 Green Shoelaces
After your kids are in bed, re-lace their sneakers with bright green shoelaces. I’m pretty sure the dollar stores still have some in stock, but a sports footwear store might also carry them.
#8 Silly String
I never let my kids get this stuff, never! But I always loved spraying it myself! Here’s your chance– cover your kitchen sink or bathroom or whatever you want in silly string. When the kids wake up, they’ll see what that naughty leprechaun has been up to!
