Leprechaun Traps

Every year, we set up traps to catch the leprechaun. The kids found a shoe box, painted it and set it up. I love how they can each come up with their own ideas! 
Letting your kids be creative and come up with their own traps is a great way to highlight their creativity! 

Hopefully we catch him this year! We set a trap up every year, and somehow he outsmarts us! If we DO catch him, we get all of his gold, and all the wishes in the world! If we don't catch him, he gets mad that we set a trap for him, and causes all kinds of chaos in our house: he turns our milk green, turns our toilet water green (even after we flush, it keeps coming back green!), hangs green streamers all over the house, spreads green surprises all over, and one year he even got into our green paint and left little footprints all over the kitchen!

Whew, I hope we catch him this year, because I am not up for cleaning up his mess again!

Mess From Last Year:
WOW, you should see the mess we woke up to this morning! That crazy leprechaun!
We better catch him next year, because I am not up for cleaning up his messes! :)
