Setting up a leprechaun trap can be as easy as an empty tissue box!
If “leprechaun trap” is on your St. Patrick’s Day bucket-list, you are in luck! In case you’re in need of some inspiration, we’ve searched high and low for the best ways to catch a leprechaun.
It can be as simple as buying a box of Lucky Charms. Specially marked boxes of Lucky Charms have a trap, on the back! Just turn it over and let your kid’s creativity run free.
Or if you want to get a little more fancy, we’ve seen leprechaun traps made of all different materials. One idea is to use a bird house from Michael’s as the base. Now that is adorable!
If you’re into the more whimsical and woodsy styles, there are plenty of ways to make a home from the leprechaun’s natural environment. Just gather lots of moss, wood, and other earthy elements to whip something up with the kids. And of course you have to have a ladder for the leprechaun to climb up!
Here’s another idea, trap the leprechauns with kindness and make a nice, inviting home where they would want to live. One cute creator used bright, happy colors to draw the leprechaun in.
You could use a wooden rainbow from Target. Paint with your favorite color scheme, add some little steps, wool for clouds, and some gold coins. Of course, you have to add a sign to direct the leprechaun to the gold.
Finally, our friends the Crafting Chicks also came up with several ways to create traps reusing common household items like an empty tissue box or soup can, or a toilet paper roll. Add their cute printables to your basic supplies and you’ve got a darling leprechaun trap!
