Kids’ Leprechaun Trap Activity for St. Patrick’s Day

leprechaun

Are you looking for a way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kids? A leprechaun trap is an easy art activity that engages the young child’s imagination, builds fine motor skills and encourages creativity. Before you get started, take a look at these simple step-by-step directions!

Materials You’ll Need

  • Shoe box
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Green construction paper
  • Green glitter
  • Green pipe cleaners

How-To Steps

  1. Draw a door on the side of the shoe box. Remember, the leprechaun is little—meaning your child needs to size the door accordingly.
  2. Cut the door out.
  3. Cover the box with the green paper, leaving a space for the door. Cut and glue the paper to the top and sides of the shoe box.
  4. Decorate the box (making it even more attractive to the leprechaun). Use glitter sprinkled over glue to make designs or write words.
  5. Create a path for the leprechaun. Build a ladder structure with pipe cleaners by twisting the ends together.

After the leprechaun trap is completely dry, leave bait. Open the shoe box’s lid, place a handful of cereal or anything else that your child thinks the leprechaun will love inside. After your child goes to sleep, remove the bait and leave a few chocolate coins behind. Check the trap the next morning to reveal the leprechaun’s bounty.
