Leprechaun money

It’s School Vacation Week again (well really more of a School Vacation Long Weekend), which in our family means a visit to a painting room of some sort. This time around The Five-Year-Old chose Plaster Fun Time, “Because I need a leprechaun pot right away.”

The Five-Year-Old's Leprechaun Pot, complete with a glittery inside and starter pack of leprechaun money to encourage new giving.

(The pottery painting places make you wait a few days for your items to go through the kiln.)

Mommyo: “What do you need a leprechaun pot for?”

The Five-Year-Old: “To collect leprechaun money.”

Mommyo: “Where are you going to get leprechaun money?”

The Five-Year-Old: “From the leprechauns. Don’t you know St. Patrick’s Day is coming?”

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
