Leprechaun Trap Ideas to Make with Kids
Leprechaun traps are new to me, but I’m so glad I saw these amazing leprechaun trap ideas this year. This is one of those wonderfully creative, open-ended activities that kids love so much. Give them some basic supplies and a box of recyclables and just sit back and watch what they come up with. They’ll have a blast coming up with different ways to trick the leprechauns into being caught.
Get inspiration from these creative leprechaun traps made by kids:
- There’s more than one way to trap a leprechaun (from Planning Play Time)
- Use legos and a sneaky slide (From Work it Mommy)
- Tempt them with free gold (from The Suburban Soapbox)
- Lure them with Lucky Charms (See this leprechaun trap and lots of other fun St. Patrick’s day ideas (from The Fickle Pickle)
- A whole pot of gold will grab their attention (from The Crafting Chicks)
- What could be more tempting than Free Slides? (From Grey House Harbor)
