Leprechaun Trap

Our leprechaun traps are a quite simple, yet hopefully effective design.

This was very easy to do with a two year old and a three year old.

The Gemini Mama Leprechaun Trap

 

Step 1 – K1 and I painted the boxes green on the outside while K2 took a longer nap.

Step 2 – Let the outside of the boxes dry

Step 3 – We decided to paint the insides gold, in hopes that it was help to attract the leprechaun.

Step 4 – When you find painting boring seek the out of doors, and let mommy finish for you.

Step 5 – When step 4 is not enough boredom cure, find inspiration in your sisters excitement for painting.

Step 6 – STICKERS! Apply lots of stickers all over the box to create a disguise for your trap.

Be sure to enjoy yourself.

In the last photo he was playing with this one shamrock. It entertained him for a good  minutes. No interruption from me. You and Mr Shamrock have a great time.

“No mom, I’m not done yet.”

 

Never. As long as there are still stickers, she will not be done.

Both traps were made with lot’s of love, and the kiddos had fun. I think next year we will add glitter and such. Maybe K1 will even come up with her own trap design. Too soon?

 

They are really excited to catch a leprechaun. Let’s hope one finds us. (Although if they make only a small mess that would be okay too.)

 

Will a leprechaun be visiting your house tonight/tomorrow? What tricks do you have planned? (Seeking inspiration look here or here)
