What is a leprechaun trap?


A leprechaun trap is a way to catch a leprechaun. Set up a little surprise inside such as gold chocolate coins, lucky charms, treats, or toys to attract your leprechaun. Then place them under a cup or box with a stick to prop it up. If you are lucky the leprechauns will come and collect their treats. They sometimes leave a little mess and try to be sneaky.

It’s a fun craft and easy activity to do with small children. They will love having their own leprechaun trap. Kids love the magical leprechauns! You might have a lucky leprechaun that leaves a little something for your kids.

The pots of gold are cute for putting in a trap. I know the leprechaun will want his own pot of gold so this is a great way to lure him into the trap. There are also free gold coins to get the leprechaun’s attention. Put them in a path up to the trap.

​Create your own leprechaun trap


It can be really easy to make a leprechaun trap. You only need simple items such as a cereal box, paper or plastic cups, cardboard box, or green construction paper. Any of these will work for the base of the box.

Get craft supplies to decorate your trap from the dollar store or Michaels craft store.

You can cover a box with green paper or paint it. Use stickers, pipe cleaners, tissue paper, pom poms, and any other craft supplies to decorate it. Use hot glue(low temp if kids are using it), craft glue, or tape to keep everything together. Let your kids come up with fun ideas for how to make their homemade leprechaun traps. Kids of all ages can have fun decorating a trap. I’ve seen some really cute leprechaun top hats for traps, rainbow color traps, and an adorable traditional box. Make a secret trap door or other fun ways to trap that leprechaun.

Don’t forget to prop up the trap with popsicle sticks or sticks. Then put some kind of treat for the leprechaun to eat. My daughter one year put lettuce in out trap because she thought the leprechaun would want something healthy.

Then the next morning see if there is a leprechaun inside the trap or if that sneaky leprechaun took anything from the trap.
