For the Kids : Let's Trap a Leprechaun!
leprechaun trap Leprechauns are tricky little Irishmen that hide their pot of gold under a rainbow. They are always looking to add more gold to their pots. This is where the St. Patrick’s Day fun begins. Try to beat them at their own game by catching a leprechaun with an Irish trap you can make with household supplies like paper plates, cups, toilet paper tubes, and even your colorful Leggo blocks.

Many classrooms full of students across America are designing these little Leprechaun traps with the hopes of trapping a Leprechaun; and you can too! Build your own leprechaun traps with the kids using our creative ideas. This is a fun activity for St. Patrick’s Day!
