St. Patrick’s Day Craft: Leprechaun Trap!

Have you ever wanted to catch a tricky little Leprechaun? Learn how to make a leprechaun trap and some tips and tricks!

Holidays in our house are a huge deal. We do something for pretty much every Holiday, my parents did it for me, so I try to make sure I do that for my little girl.

So, for St. Patrick’s Day every year me and my little one make Leprechaun Traps! This is a fun St. Patrick’s Day Craft for you and your kids to do together. We treat it kind of like the Easter Bunny, we usually leave a small shoe or coat behind to make it look like she almost caught a Leprechaun, and he was impressed so he leaves her little presents!

This is our Leprechaun Trap for this year! It was super easy and fun to make.

Here is what you will need for this St Patrick’s Day Craft: Leprechaun Trap:

  • A box (any kind will work)
  • construction paper
  • something shiny! (Leprechauns love shiny stuff!)
  • markers
  • Decorations for your box
  • scissors and glue
Step 1: Cut a hole in the top of the box (this is where the Leprechaun will get trapped! and cover the rest of the box with green construction paper.
Step 2: Add Directions to your box and cover the hole with a “rug”.  Add a Pot of gold (We used yellow construction paper cut out like gold coins) so when your Leprechaun will fall in the hole when he goes for the gold! Make sure you add a rainbow to your trap so the Leprechaun knows where to look for the gold!
Step 3: Don’t forget to add a ladder so the Leprechaun can get to the gold. Set it out the night before St Patrick’s Day and good luck!
Here are some Fun Facts about Leprechauns:
  • Leprechauns are Nocturnal, that’s why they are hard to catch!
  • Leprechauns love Rainbows, 4 leaf clovers, and of course Lucky Charms!
  • Did you know Leprechauns are despised in Ireland? In America, they are cute mischievous green elves, but to the Irish, they are nasty little creatures that wreak havoc!
  • There is nothing a leprechaun cannot fix! Have you ever had something start working again after it had been broke for awhile? You might just have a leprechaun friend!
