Leprechaun Trap for Kids

Materials
Note: Outlined below is just one way that you can make a leprechaun trap. You can easily add to the materials listed above or swap out materials for other supplies. The possibilities are endless!

Method
  • You will want to begin with an empty carton or box.  
  • Cut the top off of the box and then cover it with green paper, leaving the top uncovered.

  • Cut "a roof" from construction paper and attach it to the top of the carton, making a large "secret opening".
  • Then, cover the roof with a final piece of tissue paper.  This hides the trap while still allowing the leprechaun to fall through.

  • Decorate the outside and top of the box using construction paper and whatever else you might have on hand.
