Each year on St. Patrick’s Day, the sneaky leprechauns play tricks on children all over the world! The best way to catch them is with a leprechaun trap. First, you have to create a trap to leave out the entire day. Then, you have to lore the leprechauns in with gold, rainbows, or Lucky Charms. Once the leprechaun takes the bait, you’ve got them! Unless…the leprechaun has another trick up his hat. Here are some leprechaun traps that have worked in the past. Good luck!
