I am Irish! I have had green milk and pancakes for breakfast and corned beef and cabbage for dinner every single St. Patrick’s Day of my super Irish life. Yet I have never heard of this magical crafting opportunity called a Leprechaun trap! Leprechaun traps are crafts used, typically in elementary school or by families with small children, to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The traps are set up the night before, and children awaken to discover signs that leprechauns have visited the trap. Soon those mischievous little leprechauns will be on the hunt in your home to find whatever gold they can get their hands on.
If your kids want to try and see one then you definitely need to set up one of these traps. Here are a few of some of the most clever Leprechaun Traps I have seen for inspiration.
