Leprechaun Bait

St. Patrick's Day is next Tuesday and I have a little girl that is very excited about the possibility of leprechauns. They read books about them at preschool and she comes home and tells me all about the leprechauns. Did you know they live by a rainbow? Did you know they always looking for gold? Did you know they're green and small? I decided to make a little goodie that didn't involve too much fuss and would be a fun treat for St. Patrick's Day. I came up with "bait" and explained we would use it to try and catch a leprechaun. So far... by the amount of times I catch her Daddy eating the treats, I'd say he's the only thing we're going to catch.
