It’s St. Patrick’s Day eve. The day when children and adults alike put the finishing touches on their leprechaun traps.
Catching a leprechaun is tricky business. They are very sneaky and don’t play fair, so no one has ever caught a leprechaun.
My boys and I build a leprechaun trap every year to try and catch these dastardly creatures.
In building a leprechaun trap, you need to start with bait. Lucky Charms cereal is always good, or gold pennies or gold water. Rainbows and anything shiny are also a good draw. Make sure your trap is rigged to come down fast on the little guys.
