The Ever-Elusive Leprechaun

With St. Patrick’s Day coming next Saturday, Connor has been assigned a fun homework assignment that is due next Thursday. He has to build a leprechaun trap!

Everyone knows that if you catch a leprechaun, he has to relinquish his pot of gold. What may not be commonly known is that they are cobblers by trade, can’t resist rainbows (due to the pot of gold at the end of them) and shiny or sparkly objects, and love to break rules. I’ve been doing some research, and there are tons of ideas available to draw from, and here are some of my favorites…

From Disney Family Fun

The Leprechaun Hat Pit

The Rainbow Cage-Drop

The Tricky Trapdoor

From DotComWomen

The Popsicle-stick Trap

And finally, from Not Martha

The Leprechaun Cake Trap

I seriously hope Connor picks one of these beauties for his inspiration.

Which one is your favorite? I think mine is the Hat Trap, but that Cake Trap is looking awfully yummy…

I’ll post pictures of our creation when it’s done and let you know if we strike it rich! 🙂
