Tips for making a trap for a leprechaun
1. To make sure you will catch a leprechaun built a beautiful trap, using shiny coins as a bait.
2. A shoebox or a glass jar, glitter, popsicle sticks, wrapping paper, glue or tape – all you need for designing a trap for a leprechaun.
3. Declutter your home and use things you don’t need around the house for St Patricks Day crafts ideas. Creating St Patricks decorations and a trap for a leprechaun of useless things are fun.
4. Come up with simple and interesting Irish Day crafts ideas for kids, decorate a trap in green colors, adding shamrock decorations made of craft paper, felt or green fabric.
5. Leprechauns are quick and smart, so think of a very attractive bait to catch one of them on St Patricks Day. Golden color gets the attention like nothing else. Golden color confetti, chocolate coins or real shiny coins will work well.
6. Place one coin or a coin-shaped chocolate candy at the bottom and on the top of the ladder. A greedy leprechaun would try to get more coins from the box or glass jar, but would not be able to get out. Then you can talk to him and help him to get out after he agrees to fulfill all your wishes and share with you his golden treasure.
St Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is here, you see.
We’ll pick some shamrocks, one, two, and three.
We’ll count the leaves and look them over,
And maybe find a four-leafed clover.
I’ll sew green buttons on my vest;
Green for St. Patrick is the best.
I’ll wear a green hat, very high,
And dance a jig – at least I’ll try!
