Back in an era I like to call BP, or Before Pinterest, my oldest daughters built leprechaun traps in school for St. Patrick’s Day. We lived in a primarily Irish community, so our school really went over the top with it.
Similar to Elf on the Shelf, the leprechaun visited the classrooms every night while the children were gone and caused mischief. The next morning, the kids would find his trail of green footprints and glitter around the room.
Each student built leprechaun traps to catch him, but no one ever did. It was a really fun lesson for the kids. For the parents that had to come up with leprechaun trap ideas at home, not so much.
This year, I’m actually hoping the littlest one comes home and asks me to help build a trap. I’m already searching for ideas, so I figured I’d gather them here and share with you in case you find yourself leprechaun hunting this year too! Take a look.
I found a Feathery Leprechaun Trap over at This Mama Loves. Who knew they liked feathers?
How about this wipes container turned into a Leprechaun Trap I saw on Premeditated Leftovers? Best use of a wipes container EVER!
