Have you ever tried to catch a leprechaun? Kids love making leprechaun traps, but those sneaky leprechauns are hard to trap, they always seem to get away. If you need a fun letter from a leprechaun so kids know the leprechaun was there I’ve got you covered. ¬†This is a fun activity for kids of all ages and a simple way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!


What is a leprechaun trap?


A leprechaun trap is a trap kids can make to try and catch a leprechaun. It is a St. Patrick’s Day craft that can be made from a cereal box or other household items. Then decorated with items that are supposed to catch the attention of a leprechaun. This can be rainbows, anything gold including glitter, or treats. You can let kids get creative with what they think leprechauns like. My daughter one year put lettuce in our trap because she thought leprechauns like to eat healthy.

The leprechaun trap to catch a leprecahun can be a simple trap made out of a cereal box, box, sturdy paper, or even a paper cup that you decorate. I have some fun free printables signs for decorating a leprechaun trap. In the trap add chocolate gold coins, plastic gold coins, anything rainbow colors, or lucky charms. Leprechauns are always looking for a pots of gold at the end of a rainbow and you can set a trap to try to catch those little leprechauns. It can have a little ladder made out of paper straws or pipe cleaners for the leprechaun to climb on top and then have a hole for the leprechaun to fall into trapping them. You can also prop up a box with a wooden dowel or stick to trap the leprechaun.

I usually get small decorations from the dollar store but green construction paper, yellow paper, green paint, and some household items work too.

Leave the trap out at night and in the morning kids will want to check their leprechaun trap to see if they caught a leprechaun. If you don’t catch a leprechaun this free leprechaun letter will be a fun way for your kids to know the leprechaun was there but he was just too sneaky to catch.

It is fun to add a little magic to your kids day and these free printable leprechaun notes are a great way to do it. I also have some other St. Patrick’s Day printables including¬† leprechaun trap signs and leprechaun hats kids can wear.

This is also a fun classroom activity with kids in preschool or kindergarten age students. Kids can work on their fine motor skills making a leprechaun trap. It is a fun little activity for kids.
