Leprechaun Trap : Simple Box Trap

Today's Craft:
Leprechaun Trap~ a Simple Box Trap

Sometimes the simplest trap works the best - here's a classic Leprechaun trap!

Craft Project Directions: To make this project you will need a small box, green and yellow construction paper, foil, glue, tape, scissors, a small stick or pencil, sometimes to entice the leprechaun like Lucky Charms, gold coins, tiny furniture, a free gold sign, etc. To begin take your box and cover it with green paper. Next cut out tiny shamrocks and gold coins from your construction paper and jewel shapes from your foil and glue them on the outisde of the box to decorate it. Next decide where you want to place your trap. Once you have the perfect location, take your pencil or small stick and prop up your box with it so the box will fall down and trap the leprechaun if it is knocked into by the leprechaun. Under the box place your leprechaun bait - a small cup filled with lucky charms, a tiny chair, etc. Good Luck!

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Enjoy Crafting!
