As a mom and teacher I know all about the fun (and stress) that comes with making Leprechaun traps for St. Patrick’s Day. Today I am sharing super easy leprechaun traps that kids can actually make.
Easy 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.
Which 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 simple leprechaun traps that your child can make on their own, or with a little help from an adult.
