To Catch a Leprechaun

We were not going to do this whole leprechaun thing until Lucy, of her own accord, decided to build an elaborate leprechaun trap on the spur of the moment last night. We had zero green glitter, no Lucky Charms, no green decorations at all. So instead when the kids awoke to see if they had trapped a leprechaun they found a note from "Larry the Leprechaun" signed with footprints, some green chalk (originally slated for the Easter baskets), a can of green Play-Doh and a few printables for them to color. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Follow the precarious staircase of Girl Scout cookie boxes up to the trap.


Sign reads: "Welcome Lepercan! One at a time, please!" Safety girl made it. A chip off the old block.


There's the gold coin she made and placed carefully inside the box. It's resting on a platform that is supposed to give way when he steps on it, thus trapping him in the box. Will it work?


Nope. It didn't work. But he left a note: "Can't catch me! But good try, and thanks for the gold!" :)
