Ideas for Leprechaun Traps


Need some ideas for leprechaun traps? You've come to the right family. We know a little bit about leprechauns.

First the boys called their grandmother, a native of County Cork, to confirm a few facts about leprechauns. Yes, they are interested in shoes. It's the source of their name in fact. Second, they are extremely tricky and you should never take your eyes off of them or they are bound to cause you mischief. Reminds me of three boys I know. 

Next the boys asked me for help on making traps. I am the expert on catching Irish men and not letting them out of my sight, so I gave them a few tips and sent them off to create their traps. 

I was very impressed with their creativity and innovative ideas. The videos below offer some excellent ideas for leprechaun traps and are all kid-designed and kid-constructed.
