Leprechaun Traps

Last year, to celebrate St. Patty's Day we made a leprechaun trap that we set out on the eve of St. Patrick's day.   We have a naughty little leprechaun that comes out each year that we wanted to catch and steal his gold.  We weren't successful; he avoided the trap.  But, he did leave us some chocolate.

The boys had so much fun that they insisted that we make a trap again this year.  We did.  It is now a fun family tradition.  I let the boys design the trap this year. We decorated a box to be a pirate hideout.  Anakin Skywalker drew a treasure map that we placed inside the box to lure the leprechaun into the trap.  

I love this map.  He is still learning to read.   I thought he did a great job of sounding out words all by himself.
The kids have a great time making these traps with me.   Its a fun easy craft that we can do together.  Have you made any leprechaun traps lately?
