Leprechaun Trap: DIY Kid Style

It’s not very often that one of my sons pitches me a story for SuperMommyNot, but today Asher was ready to show the world how to make the perfect Leprechaun trap. He just turned six and has decided he’s got what it takes to show and tell “DIY Kid Style.” It took him about a day and a half to get it together, but he sums it up in the video below.

By the way, Asher says, if there’s any kid out there who needs a little extra help, he’s ready to talk you through it!

A Kid DIY Valentine

If you’ve got a budding artist, put him (or her) to work. Invite him to create an original piece for his valentine class exchange. Don’t you remember what it was like getting a valentine from your special friends?

Once the artwork is complete, “reproduce” it! A color copy machine is perfect… you’re half way done!

Mount the artwork onto a beautiful valentine themed sheet of paper. (We found a red, velvet type of construction paper at a craft store.) Then roll it up into a scroll, tie some pretty ribbon around it and voilà… you are DONE! Your child can hand out his/her unique, one of a kind Valentine to all those special someones.

Here’s an example of what Jackson created for his kindergarten class. Only a six year old could come up with this. It’s an elephant blowing heart kisses out into the world. A tiny green bird sits atop the elephant tweeting out hearts!

What will your little Valentine come up with?

Happy Valentines Day!
