Leprechaun Trap

Have your little ones create their very own leprechaun traps to catch those tricky little fellas. All you need is an empty shoebox, green construction paper, and some shiny gold coins. Cut out a small door in the side of the shoebox, and then cover the box with green construction paper to make it look like a little leprechaun house. Place some gold coins inside the box, and voila! Your very own leprechaun trap.
