Leprechaun Repellent

Ok, let me start by reminding you that I taught middle school for 6 years, so I didn't realize just how many "holidays" elementary school (specifically early elementary) teachers have to celebrate.  I JUST finished President's Day when Valentine's Day snuck up on me...then I find out I have to give Dr. Seuss a birthday party.  Now, a leprechaun is supposed to come mess up my room and leave gold and treasure??  My immediate response was, "Huh? Ain't no Leprechaun coming up in here and messing up my room!" (Yeah, I know the grammar sucks, but come on....I'm southern :) I get a pass.)  ANYWHO...I thought it would be cute to create Leprechaun Repellent and make a big deal about not letting one in on Friday....Teaching is all about acting anyway, right?  So, I plan to fill my bottle with some water and glitter, then make a big, silly deal of spraying it around the classroom.  Of course, come Friday, the repellent won't have worked, and I will still leave their "treasure" in the room.  I may even leave a note from the Leprechaun that says he felt the need to be good and leave treats, not trash the room, because of the repellent.  Maybe I can convince the kids that the "Leprechaun Away" will make them behave too......

Click the picture below to get the Leprechaun Away label for free!!  The label says "Leprechaun Away.....Keep those pesky Leprechauns away this St. Patrick's Day with this super lucky glitter spray!"  The top label fit this spray bottle that I bought at Dollar Tree last weekend, but I included other sizes for other bottles as well!  Enjoy!
