My girls aren't in preschool anymore, but one of my home daycare kids attends the same school. After school yesterday, all he wanted to do was build a leprechaun trap. Now, at first they insisted that to build a trap, you needed to be inside with scissors, paper, glue and glitter. "Someone" managed to convince them that leprechauns might be easier to catch outside. They spent the entire afternoon outside building traps.
First, you have to have something to lure your leprechaun into the trap. As leprechauns are known to be quite greedy, jewels or gold are a good choice.
Next, you need some way to actually capture the leprechaun. When he goes in for the jewels, he'll hit the stick, knocking the bowl on top of himself.
I don't know what the overturned chair is for. I'll have to consult with the architects when they get home today.
It almost worked. Notice how the bowl is overturned. According the Princess, who was lead architect on this project, he must have been a rather strong leprechaun because obviously, he was under the bowl at one point, but must have flipped it off.
I did manage to catch my own little leprechaun!
It wasn't easy! He's pretty quick and sneaky himself!
