My 6yr old daughter has really been wanting to make something for an instructable and enter it in a contest. So when she came home last week with a project assignment from school to build a leprechaun trap I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for her to try out her instructable skills. She was told that leprechauns are wee little fellows that are attracted to very shinny things. So we raided the house and took a trip to the dollar store. Together I think we accomplished a great little leprechaun trap. Maybe this will inspire your kiddos into making a trap and seeing if they are able to snatch an infamous Leprechaun!

Step 1: Materials

We used
  • 1 gold foil folding present box
  • some st. pattys day garland
  • Rolos for our gold to lure them in
  • some yellow easter grass to make a nice soft bed for them
  • some green bows
  • a hot glue gun
  • a little girl with a big imagination
This is so fun! I love the box, it's fitting for a trap! Best of luck catching a leprechaun!
lol... ditto what gib said! What a great project!
I think I'm going to make one and see if we have any leprechauns in our neighborhood! Wonderful, cute, fun instructable!
This looks like such a fun project!
They are going to be so mad when they realize that's not gold! Very cute. :)
