Why a Rainbow Treasure Hunt?

A rainbow treasure hunt is the perfect way to get into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.

The leprechaun is a primary symbol of the March 17th holiday. Tradition tells us that these fairies, dressed all in green, hide their pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Leprechauns enjoy mischief and are difficult to catch because they’re always one step ahead. And if you catch a leprechaun, he will give you his pot of gold or grant you three wishes in exchange for his release.

What better way to celebrate springtime than to send your kids on a search through the rainbow for a leprechaun and his pot of gold?
