St. Patrick’s Day is rounding the corner. Whether you get decked out in green every year or never really celebrate, this craft is sure to get you and your family in the spirit! Make some leprechaun bait and a trap to try and catch one of those silly little fellas!
Leprechaun bait is a crowd-pleasing snack with a festive look and delightful taste. There is even a delicious healthy version! The salty and sweet mix is great for movie night while the veggies are perfect for an afterschool snack.
What’s more, Personal Creations created a tag for your leprechaun bait that makes for adorable goodie bags. Download the printable, cut and fold along the respective lines, and staple to your treat bag. Your little ones will love the cute rhyme!
Now that you have your bait, it’s time to lay the trap. Help your children cut, fold, and glue to build a tiny little leprechaun house. Add St. Patrick’s themed decor, such as a pot of gold, and your tasty bait to complete the trap.
Leave it overnight and check for a leprechaun in the morning. If you caught a leprechaun, he has to grant you three wishes in order to be released. It’s also possible that the pesky guy got away with some of your gold and treats.
Just like the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Santa, the whole family can enjoy the thrill of receiving a visit from a St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun!
