Leprechaun Traps To Capture Your Kids' Imaginations

As legend has it, if your kids capture one of these sprites, he'll lead you to gold!

St. Patrick's Day is coming up fast (March 17) and that means it's time to try to catch a leprechaun again.

These little sprites have a lot of gold thanks to their incredible skill at making shoes. And they'll reveal where they're hiding their riches if your kids capture one.

According to Irish legend, though, you can't take your eyes off of a leprechaun once he's in your trap. Otherwise, he'll disappear.

To help your kids come up with a leprechaun trap design, we found some great patterns. These are sure to capture their imaginations at the very least.
