*Warning! This is an adult only post. Nothing is risque, but these ideas are for adults eyes only!*
You still have time to make some fun stuff to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The above was a fun banner that I made.
Starting to work on your Leprechaun Trap now would give you time to make this fun trap that Katrina made!
Or this one that Katrina also made!
More trap ideas:
-Mini cauldron-can buy at party store or Mini Plant Pot Painted Black filled with coins (real or foil covered chocolate ones), or gold wrapped candy like rolos left out to be found by the children in the morning.
-Gold or green glitter trails from Leprechauns. Sprinkle the glitter then use your fingers to make leprechaun tracks in the glitter.
-Leave potato bits to tempt Leprechaun’s into traps. Other temptations my kids have come up with, over the years, are pictures of female leprechauns, money, fairy furniture, shiny things (like jewels), etc. Let them get creative about what they think will attract a Leprechaun into a trap!
-Make Leprechaun clothing pieces that could have been caught by the trap. We have a hat that got stuck on a trap! My daughter really wants to get another piece of clothing this year. I’m thinking a shoe would be so cute!
-The Leprechaun’s always turn our milk green, or other foods that are in our fridge green, as well!
Check out our Flikr stream for other traps my children have made themselves, as well as the infamous hat! Traps don’t have to be ornate and fancy as it is more about the time you spend with your kids building the trap, or the imagination your child is using to come up with their own trap.
What do you do for St. Patrick’s Day? I would love to see what traps you have made or what other traditions you have for this holiday!
