Leprechaun Trap

20130307-132902.jpg

Around this time of year it is a fun pass time to search for four (4) leaf clovers. You can spend a lot of time searching closely and looking in detail at every clover. I enjoy using this pass time with my toddler as a way to practice our counting. This is also a great way to introduce your little ones to nature. It is said that finding these clovers with four (4) leaves will bring good luck. When we are out at the park we always stop and spend some time scanning for a lucky find.

Well…We chose to amplify our fortune hunt in our home by attempting to capture the source of the St. Patrick’s magic. We are planning on capturing a Leprechaun! This is no easy task. First of all, they don’t want to be caught. Secondly, they are tricky little guys. So with all this said, you may wonder, just how does one go about capturing a Leprechaun? Why a trap of course!

For this creation we utilized a piece of cardboard for our base. Then attached the top of a shoe box to one side of the cardboard base. My son and I had a blast decorating our trap. Below are the shots I was able to get during our craft time.

The pictures speak for themselves and in terms of decorating it is really up to the designer.

  1. Btw, an update. We took 2nd place at the county library for our trap. This was a great surprise. This was such a fun project. We will definitely try our luck again next year for first place.
