How To Catch A Leprechaun

Leprechauns: Little Irish shoemaking elves that have a love for gold. You know when one is about when you hear the tapping of hammers. My son's homework assignment for the month was to make a trap to catch a leprechaun. All of the projects from class will be due tomorrow, in hopes to trap a "wee" one. What the class will do IF they trap one-I have no idea!

It was a fun project. I used an empty cardboard napkin container, some cardboard lined with shelf paper. from some Avon Boxes, some glitter, some gold necklaces and pretend coins, some crayons, and a lot of clover, weeds, and rocks and dirt from the yard. Nicholas is pretty proud..I just hope it doesn't all wilt overnight. How the hell am I going to carry this to his classroom tomorrow? It shall be interesting.

Can't he just use a mouse trap spraypainted green with a little Irish whiskey as the lure? I'm just sayin'.

You guys did that very cute :-).

Julie, Nicholas sure id a fine job on the trap. I wish his luck. I wonder how many otheres had Mary Kay boxes to use.

Most of the little buggers can be cornered with some good Irish whisky, but unfortunately by the time I've had a nip or two, I'd forgotten what my mission was.
