This activity pairs well with Adam Wallace’s book How to Catch a Leprechaun!
First things first, scout out the perfect place to set your trap! Leprechauns are sneaky little buggers, so we recommend setting your trap by a window, fireplace or door.
Once you have selected the perfect location, set your charger plate and napkin down as the staging ground for your trap.
Time to decorate! Using stickers, jazz up your trap until its just right. Don’t forget Leprechauns love all things sparkly!
Next, cut the paper straw into thirds to create the prop used to support the trap. We found making a small ledge or slit on the side of the straw (as seen in the first picture above) helps tremendously.
Laying the bait is an important step in setting the perfect trap. Candies, clovers and other playful elements are sure to draw in an unsuspecting Leprechaun! After the bait in placed set your trap and wait.
These magical little guys are nearly to impossible to catch but if you’re lucky enough one will undoubtedly visit your trap. Even if you don’t catch one, they will likely leave a sweet treat or token behind to say “Happy St. Patrick’s Day”!
