Saint Patrick’s Day (March 17) can be such a magical holiday for kids. With leprechauns, rainbows, green foods, and pots of gold, what’s not to like?
One fun activity is to help your kids make a Leprechaun Trap. Using odds and ends from around the house (empty oatmeal containers are wonderful for this) your kids can use their imagination to figure out the best way to trap a Leprechaun.
Hint: Leprechauns love shiny things, so use coins and trinkets for bait. Posting signs letting the leprechaun know he is welcome is another great way to trick him into your trap!
Leprechaun Letter Printable
Once the trap is set and your kids are in bed, it’s your chance to make the experience truly magical for them. Find a creative way to spring the trap. Cut out an escape hole (bonus points if it is shaped like a leprechaun). And leave some rewards and treats behind, along with this Leprechaun letter printable. (Be sure to follow the clues in the letter when placing the rewards and treats!)
I hope that this free Leprechaun letter printable makes your Saint Patrick’s Day extra magical and special. (Note: We do not accept responsibility for any real leprechauns finding their way to your trap!)
