How to Trap a Leprechaun

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I don’t typically do much to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (other than the obligatory wearing of green). But for Sophie’s homework project this month, she had to create a leprechaun trap for school. After getting some Pinterest inspiration, Sophie decided to fill a jar with “gold” and attach a ladder so the leprechaun could climb up and then get trapped in the jar.

Aside from the Rolo candies, we had everything at home so it wasn’t too daunting of a craft. We had the shamrock fabric, Mason jar, pipe cleaners, and scrapbook paper in the garage. And a friend helped Sophie build the tiny wooden ladder out of twigs for a fairy house.

These projects are supposed to be family efforts, with the student doing most of the work. And with the exception of the hot glue gun, this really was Sophie’s project — right down to the “frey” gold sign. (I purposefully did not spell it for her because I felt strongly it should be HER effort.)

Sophie is so excited to go to school today and see if her trap caught a leprechaun. I can’t wait to pick her up and hear what happened.

Of course, I think I may have already found our backyard leprechaun!
