Leprechaun Trap

Leprechaun Trap

May the luck of the Irish be with the children in your classroom as they create and set traps to capture leprchauns this St. Patrick's Day. Children will be enchanted with the idea of catching a leprechaun with gold pieces and sweet treats. Simply provide an array of whimsical, glittery craft supplies and allow children's imaginations to run wild!

Required Materials:


Cover each cardboard box with green art paper roll.


Provide children with glue, scissors, and a variety of embellishments including: glitter, feathers, pom poms, and kwik stix to decorate their box.


Have children prop up their box in anticipation of trapping a leprechaun. Place coins and candy underneath to lure them into the trap.


Leave the traps out the night before St. Patrick's Day to see if the children can outsmart the mischievous leprechauns and catch one!
