This week we have had lots of fun learning about St Patrick, leprechauns, shamrocks and all things Irish!

We´ve made special glasses which turn us into leprechauns and singing and dancing to traditional Irish dancing! And look at our little leprechauns searching for gold under the rainbow!


You too can bring the mischief and magic of Leprechauns to your own home with this much loved Irish tradition.


A Leprechaun´s Visit – Leprechauns are little Irish fairies who keep gold at the bottom of the rainbow. On the night before St. Patrick’s Day, it is tradition for Leprechauns to come out to play . If you find a leprechaun, he will tell you where to find his pot of gold!

Why not play some little tricks or do some silly things that your children will notice in the morning, for example you can leave little gold coins lying around or leave a shamrock under your child´s pillow. Then the child will know the leprechaun has been to visit!

Happy leprechaun hunting!
