Britt's Leprachaun Trap, Gold Rush Style

All school year long, ever since he found out he was in Sra. Downes' class, and really even before he knew, Britt has been thinking and thinking and thinking of how he could build a Leprechaun Trap. You see, he knew he was going to get to build a one, because his big sister got to make one when she was a second grader in Sra. Downes' class. And ever since that time, over two years ago, he has been waiting and scheming and wracking his brain for creative ways to lure one of the little fellers into a trap. And so today was the day to take his trap to school, and he could hardly wait! After a lot of thinking, he decided to make a miniature gold mine.This project involved all four of the B's as we helped him create his own version of the Klondike Creek gold mine, just like the Hoffman Crew from the hit reality television show, Gold Rush. After all, Leprechauns just love gold! And what could be more alluring than a pan of freshly mined gold? Gold Rush is one of Britt's favorite shows, and we've seen every single episode this season. We feel like gold miners, ourselves! Hopefully his trap will work - he told me this morning that if he catches a Leprechaun, he's going to donate it to a museum, and then he'll be famous! I'll let you know if he manages to capture one...


  1. How cute is he??!!! What a great job. I hope he catches the Leprechaun.

  2. this is awesome!! and maybe not yet, but he will find the pot of gold @ the end of the rainbow!
