~~**Leprechaun Traps! FUN for the Little ones!! **~~~~

I just thought I would share our St. Patrick day tradition, since before my husband I had never heard of it. My kids just LOVE making leprechaun traps. 


 The night of St. Patricks day we set leprechaun traps! You get a shoe box, and prop it up with a pencil. Then we leave something shiny and green under the box. Well after the kids go to bed at night we throw some chocolate gold coins under the box, so when they get up in the morning when they look to see if they caught the leprechaun they are thrilled to get some chocolate gold :) It's fun. My husband's family is Irish(grandma straight from Ireland), I had never heard of  doing the leprechaun traps before then.
