Last year, the boys thought they had designed a fool-proof trap, but the leprechaun managed to escape. According to my middle son... when the leprechaun fell in the trap, he grabbed the ladder as he was falling, and used it to get out. Luckily, the tricky leprechaun dropped a bunch of his chocolate gold coins while he was trying to escape.
We always use Lucky Charms as leprechaun bait, and my boys like to package it up and share it with their friends. You can check out the adorable free printable tags here.
This year, my boys will design a new trap, and I will enjoy watching them do it. You never know... this might be the year we catch a leprechaun, he will give us his gold, and we can take a super-fun family vacation. Fingers crossed!
