It’s time to catch a Leprechaun. The kids and I have been trying to catch a leprechaun for at least 10 years, now. This year, we tweaked our trap a little bit. We added some more gold, and a sign to entice them. I’m feeling pretty confident about it. With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would find a Few Leprechaun Trap Ideas to share with you, so you can catch one too.
What is a Leprechaun?
Leprechauns are small creatures that like to lead a quiet life mending shoes and looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. They can be a bit mischevious though. They often play tricks on the people they visit.
What Do You Do If You Catch a Leprechaun?
If you are kind to them then they will let you make a wish!
How Many Wishes Will a Leprechaun Grant you?
Legend has it that if you catch a leprechaun, he or she can barter for their freedom. They are allowed to grant three wishes.
What are Leprechauns Attracted To?
Mostly gold, but rainbows and green shamrocks help too.
Here’s a quick Video on One of our Leprechaun Traps. We usually start with a Dollar Tree Hat and go from there. The link to this idea is below…
Are you ready to Catch a Leprechaun? Let the shenanigans begin…
The link for this one did not lead me to a user-friendly site. I’ll keep looking for the link, and update when I find it. This looks like a shoe box painted green, wooden dowels to hang the pot of gold, and a cut out masked with paper. Very cute!

From Pop Sugar, this is a nice and simple trap. Just wait for the leprechauns to come by and pull the string to catch them.
