Happy Tuesday, friends!  It's an especially happy Tuesday for me… I am off this week!  Yay for celebrating the Presidents!  But, I didn't stop by today to BRAG.  I am actually here with a special St. Pat's surprise!

A few days ago, a little box arrived in the mail… and this was what I found!

The Naughty Leprechaun Story Cover

The Naughty Leprechaun Story by Stephanie Hicks is a fun St. Patrick's Day tradition that you can start in your home, or in your classroom!  The set comes with a 24 page hardcover book, a 3.5" etched coin, and a keepsake box to keep it all together.

The tradition starts on March 14th, and will continue each night until St. Patrick's Day.  Before bedtime {or before the end of the school day}, children can decide which leprechaun will visit during the night using the special, double sided coin.  One side shows Liam, the nice leprechaun, and the other side shows Leyland, the naughty leprechaun.


The next morning, children will discover rewards and treasures from the nice leprechaun… or mischief and pranks {and maybe some sweet treats!} from the naughty leprechaun.  Either way, it's sure to be a ton of fun that your kiddos will LOVE!

The included storybook explains The Naughty Leprechaun Tradition {which I described a little bit above}.  It also tells The Legend of Liam and Leyland, twin leprechaun brothers who leave Ireland to share their lessons with children who have been given a coin.

The Naughty Leprechaun Story set is a fun way to urge children to do their best!  And to promote good behavior in your home or classroom… at least for a few days ;)  If you want to grab a copy for yourself, you can visit the official site.  There, you will also find some treasure and mischief ideas under the "resources" tab!

Now, how about a little giveaway!  You can WIN your own copy of The Naughty Leprechaun Story right here!  Just enter using the Rafflecopter below.

The blog post title says it all-- A Cupcake for the Teacher LOVES TpT!  And so do the girls over at Freebielicious... which is why we are teaming up again for another FAB-U-LOUS giveaway!!
The Freebielicious girls are giving away $10 TpT gift certificates on each of our blogs {it's a hop!}, and TpT has graciously donated MORE gift cards that are being given away on the Freebielicious blog!  So many chances to win!  But before I give away the goods…


I joined TpT in December of 2011… just over two years ago.  I remember reading other teaching blogs, browsing shops, and thinking, "I think I can do this!"  And then asking my husband, "Do you think I can do this?!"  Of course, he said YES, so I went for it.  And I'm SO glad I did!

Teachers Pay Teachers has been a financial blessing.  It has given my husband and me the opportunity to save money for our family and home.  :)  We are SO thankful for the extra income!

Creating products for TpT has given me a creative outlet.  It has allowed me to share my ideas with teachers around the world.  It has also provided my classroom with a one-stop-shop for the BEST teaching resources around.

TpT and blogging has given me the chance to meet teachers from all over the country.  These girls have become good friends.  We can talk to each other about anything and everything… and trust me, we do!!


Back to the giveaway!  I am offering a $10 gift certificate to TpT!  All you have to do to enter is use the Rafflecopter below.  Easy peasy!
