Catch a Leprechaun with a Leprechaun trap

Leprechaun trapWith St. Patrick’s Day approaching, my kids wanted to catch a Leprechaun, with a Leprechaun trap. They devised a plan that involved at trap and gold. I had them color regular printer paper with St. Patrick’s day themes, including “Free Gold” and we taped them onto a box. Then, my son grabbed a wooden spoon, placed some “gold” under the box, anything sparkly will do and I sent them off to bed.

The next morning we found the trap had been sprung but alas, no Leprechaun, however, he did leave a chocolate gold coin for each child (in the trap) and a note.

We also found a few tricks had been played on us!

We then enjoyed our favorite St. Patty’s Day breakfast, left by the Leprechaun, Lucky Charms. So, though the Leprechaun trap┬ádidn’t catch him this year, the kids really enjoyed trying!

May the luck of the Irish be with you!
