Trying to catch the little guy is a fun St. Patrick’s Day tradition in our house this time of year. Though we haven’t succeeded yet, we’ve had a great time trying! We love building new Leprechaun traps each year and eagerly waiting to see if this is the year that we finally catch him.
What are Leprechaun Traps?
Leprechaun traps are fun craft projects that give kids of all ages a chance to catch these quick and sneaky creatures. Usually made of common household items, the traps are set the night before St. Patrick’s Day. The next morning the children will check the traps for signs that the leprechaun has visited.
How to Use the Leprechaun Letter
It’s always a tiny bit of a letdown when the trap is empty in the morning. However, any sign that the leprechaun has visited the trap will make the kids feel like they succeeded. That’s why this leprechaun trap letter is so much fun.
Signed by Lucky the Leprechaun, this fun letter contains a cute rhyming poem wishing the children a happy St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a simple way to let them know that their trap was amazing, but that they’ll have to try just a little harder next time.

The best way to make it look like the leprechaun has visited recently is to place the letter near the trap. It’s a fun holiday tradition to make it look like they left something behind in their haste to get away. These are a few ideas to show that your leprechaun has paid you a visit.
- Scatter some chocolate gold coins or other little treats near the trap. (If you can’t find them at the store, you can buy chocolate coins on Amazon)
- Make some four leaf clovers out of green paper and place them nearby.
- Place a tiny leprechaun hat or shoe nearby to make it look the leprechaun left it behind while he was making his escape.
- Create some leprechaun footprint with green construction paper. Place them so it looks like the leprechaun was running away from the trap.
Once your own little leprechauns read the letter and see the signs that the little guy has visited, they’ll forget all about any disappointment and be inspired to try even harder next year!
