Happy St. Patrick's Day!

"No Lepeordcons allowd! No Mischief allowed!"

Leprechauns, you've been warned! (Lepeordcons, too.) The house is an absolute disaster. I'm drowning in boxes. We close on our new house today. And I do not need any surprises! E took my despair to heart and made two signs to protect us from those wily little guys. I sure hope it works!

Just in case you are not up to your ears in real estate legal documents, here are a couple rainbow-themed activities you might enjoy today.

A Water Rainbow Xylophone. It's so simple and so much fun. Just fill a set of glasses with varying amounts of water and tint the water using food coloring. We did this a couple summers ago, but I should really bring it out again for A to have a turn at it. 

A Rainbow Ribbon Streamer. This one takes a little more preparation, but the toy lasted for well over a year and I used the remaining ribbon in countless projects. In fact, I just packed up some of those spools this afternoon! At the time, I also made a cute rainbow ribbon baby toy.

I hope you enjoy a day full of rainbows and pots of gold... with no mischief allowed!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the signs! So cute.

    The leprechauns played a few tricks on us.

    Good luck with the closing! I hope the move goes well.

  2. I hope everything goes well! I love the streamer.

  3. Looks like its going to be a great day!
    Your signs are too funny! =)

  4. Yes, I would say you don't need any leprechauns in your house this week. Good luck with the house closing!

  5. One managed to cause a little ruckus in our house but has since left. My daughter was not at all happy that he turned our vanilla pudding green.
