How to Catch a Leprechaun
Leprechauns are known for their treasures. A fun craft activity for St. Patrick's Day's to build a Leprechaun trap. Click on the link below for instructions on how to build one.
Remember, they are very difficult to catch, so don't be despaired if you don't catch one. However, if you do, what treasures may await you!
St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt
Make a treasure hunt for kids. We all know how much Leprechauns like their gold. Let kids have the fun of finding some of their own gold. All you need are some plastic gold coins.
Take the coins and hide them, just as you would do for an Easter egg hunt. Be sure to let kids know the boundaries in which they are hidden. Give each child a bag or pillow case and let the hunt begin! The winner is the person who finds the most coins. If desired, have a prize for the winner.
Plastic Gold Coins
Using the shamrock you see here, print it out and cut it to be in the proper shamrock shape. Cut out a small photo of each child and have them glue it in the middle of the shamrock.
Now, let kids decorate the rest of the shamrock with crayons, cut out colored pieces of construction paper, glitter, etc. When everything is dry, use magnets and let them place them on refrigerators.
