How to make a Leprechaun trap or how to catch a Leprechaun. How about do something different for St. Patrick's Day? Everyone knows about leprechauns, wee little men who hide pots of gold at the end of the rainbow. According to legend, if you capture a leprechaun, you can force him to show you where his gold is hidden. I think this is a fabulously fun idea, great for a family activity at home. Designing your trap is half the fun. Use chocolate gold coins as bait. It can be as simple as a box propped p with a stick, or make it elaborate like the mouse trap game. Start with a base of wood or cardboard. Make a cup that falls on top of him, or a bottle he falls into. Don't forget to make it look all green and beautiful. Here are some great ideas for Leprechaun traps. Good hunting and may the luck of the Blarney be with you.
