classroom st patty's day idea

first the recipe:

8 oz. corn pops (or half a big bag)

1 cube butter

1/2 c. corn syrup

1 c. brown sugar

1 tsp. soda

mix and stir 2 minutes in 2 quart sauce pan until bubbles begin to form around edges. add 1 tsp soda and stir. pour slurry over corn pops and coat well. spread onto large baking sheet and bake in 250 oven for 15 minutes stirring every 5 minutes. let cool on baking sheet

Now the fun: (first of all I found the green pail at family dollar for $4 in their outdoor section...pots can be green right?)

on top of the carmel corn pop gold was more loot... twixes and wonka chocolate eggs.


now: Here's the idea...

I'm going to go to my son's 5th grade classroom and hide peices to the below pictured horseshoe puzzle under chairs and things ... and the pot of gold... somewhere in the classroom. They won't suspect a thing. then when I will show up after lunch and tell them that my friend "Lucky the Leprechaun" left them a pot of gold somewhere in the room and there are clues to a riddle that they need to find, they will get the puzzle peices and solve the riddle and find the pot of gold.

see if you can tell where the pot of gold will be hidden?

every classroom has this spot...
