The Easiest Leprechaun Traps for Kids

If you’re here, I am guessing it’s because your child’s teacher has asked their class to build leprechaun traps at home.

 And here’s the dealio, folks:

This sounds like a lot of fun….and it will be, but let’s set realistic expectations first.

Most of the leprechaun traps that you see on Pinterest were not made by kids…

They were either made by parents or professional craft bloggers.

This is totally fine, but the finished results are totally unattainable for most kids between the ages of 3 and 10 years old.

As a teacher I am a big proponent of doing crafts WITH your child, not FOR your child….ya know what I mean?

That’s why I have created this post; to share easy ideas for kids to make their own leprechaun trap with a little help from an adult.

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and that means it’s time to gather your craft supplies and try to trick that sneaky little leprechaun who’s on the hunt for some free gold.

Homemade leprechaun traps are a great way for kids of all ages to work on problem-solving, and creativity and test out their engineering skills.

Not only are they a fun tradition, but they can also be a great family project that kids of all ages can do with everyday household items like cereal boxes, toilet paper rolls and construction paper.
