I thought I'd be clever (that's never a good beginning), and make sets of leprechaun ears for the younger children. They've been exhibiting leprechaun-like behaviour anyway, so I figured they might as well look the part.
I cut sets out of green, fun foam, following a pattern, I'd seen on Make and Takes.
My first set was little big for E, but it didn't really matter, because the older children informed me they were goblin, not leprechaun ears, anyway. Some debate ensued on whether leprechauns have green, or normal skin colored ears, and whether their ears are pointed, or round.
Finally, we clicked over to the Lucky Charms website. Lucky should know - right? Well, not only are Lucky's ears skin colored, and round, there happens to be a movie making game on the site right now, that includes a goblin...with green...pointed...ears.
Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to be clever.
But, it's great to be a homeschooler.
