DIY Leprechaun Trap
With St Patrick’s Day approaching – it’s time to start thinking of everything Irish. Usually, green is the color of choice to represent the beautiful emerald isle. Rainbows are also synonymous with the day and the pots of gold to be found under it. Crafting for the day is so much fun when we take all of this into consideration. One such popular craft is to make a trap to catch those naughty leprechauns! They think that gold is all theirs – but we’ll show them.
Transform a shoe box or leprechaun hat (or anything you like really) into a cunning trap with gold chocolate coins and rainbows. It’s great fun to do with the kids and everyone can get involved. You can also make other crafts around this theme such as cookies with leprechauns and gold coins on it. So be prepared to be dazzled by these leprechaun traps.
