Leprechaun Traps

St. Patrick’s Day is soon approaching and the girls are already brain storming on what kind of Leprechaun trap to make this year. Every year my daughter make trap in hopes to catch the Leprechaun before he messes up the house.  Creating a Leprechaun trap with your children can be so much fun.  It gives them a chance to get creative, use imagination, and lets them get a little messy.

You can use so many different materials to create a Leprechaun trap.

My favorite components to this trap was the baby food jar that Tiffany painted black to use as a pot for her gold painted rocks and the ladder that she made out of straws.  When you let your children get creative, you might be amazed at what they come up with.

I asked Tiffany the concept behind her trap and she said, “Once the Leprechaun uses the ladder to get in, he will not have one to get out!”

Here is another Leprechaun Trap the girls created in the past.  Tiffany thought we needed to make a big one to see if we could catch the Leprechaun! I have to say that I loved the grass around the hut and the fruit loops rainbow, leading the way to the gold.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to making a Leprechaun trap.  The kids will have so much fun creating, cutting, painting, taping, glue and whatever else they decided to do.  I do ask one thing,  If you do catch the Leprechaun lets us know how!  Please share the traps you create, we would love to see your creations!
