This was our first year given the school assignment to build a leprechaun trap and was a project where the whole family got involved.
We came up with the idea to make it into a restaurant called the Rainbow Restaurant, serving all you can eat Lucky Charms. What leprechaun could resist that kind of a joint, right?!
We made it out of materials we already had around the house, the only thing we had to buy was a box of Lucky Charms. Bonus!
Inside, there is a table with a big bowl of cereal. The mini spoon in the bowl has a a string on it rigged to the roof and a paper cup, so when the little leprechaun takes his first bite and raises the spoon, the cup drops down on him.
My husband thought of that one. He’s a smart one, I tell you.
I have to say I was sort of not looking forward to this project, but it actually made for a really fun Saturday project where even little sister could be involved.
On Sunday night, my daughter, said, “Mom, I love my leprechaun trap so much I can’t stop thinking about it.”
Cute how it’s the little things that are so fun at this age. And it makes a project that took the better part of a Saturday all worth it!
Did any of you out there make leprechaun traps this year? Any ideas to share?
