How to Catch a Leprechaun

This fun craft is something that the kids will love and keep them busy for an hour! My sister has been doing this with her kids since they were little and I just love this idea! Let the kids (and yourself) make a leprechaun trap for St. Patrick’s Day!

All you need is:

  1. A box/bottle
  2. Paint(or construction paper/wrapping paper)
  3. Glitter or your choice of decorating items
  4. Scissors
  5. Glue
Here’s what you do:

I used my milk carton


Cut the top of it off so you have an even surface to make your trap door.


Gather your decorating supplies!


Wrap your box with paper/paint it! And install your trap door (tape a piece of paper to the top).


Like so.


Make your rainbow and sign! Hot glue them together and onto a pipe cleaner or stick so it will hang over the trap door.


Attach the rainbow and you have a finished Leprechaun trap! Good luck!

YAY! You successfully made a trap for a Leprechaun! Now, you can make your trap however you would like, this is just ONE of the tons of ways you can make yours look. Get creative and have fun with it! 🙂
