Leprechaun Traps

To Catch a Leprechaun Hat

Back when I was teaching, I had the most wonderful Irish Principal.  He was like a kid on St. Patrick's day.  Everyone got in the spirit of having fun and creating a little leprechaun havoc throughout the school.  My students each created their own leprechaun traps to try to catch the little imps.  We got close to capturing one or two but were never successful.  Hopefully, you will have better luck at your house. 
You can use anything you want to build your trap - cereal box, shoebox, empty cans or containers, string, net... Get creative.  Check out these photos if you need a  little inspiration.
A few things to keep in mind:
* they like gold
* green is their favorite color
* rainbows are special
* they eat Lucky Charms cereal
* they will leave a trail of gold or glitter

Be sure to post a picture so everyone can see your creations.
