DIY Leprechaun Trap: Step-by-Step Guide

Whether you're a seasoned St. Patrick's Day enthusiast or looking for a new tradition to start with your family, creating a Leprechaun Trap is a fantastic way to celebrate the holiday and spark your little one’s imagination.

You'll need:

  • Cutouts from our free Skillmatics printable

  • Scissors and Glue

Steps to Make Your Leprechaun Trap

Step 1: Cut out all of the items from the sheets.

Step 2: Make the hat - cut small slits to make it easier to attach to the base.

Step 3: Place the circle on top of the hat along with the gold bucket and rainbow.

Step 4: Add special touches to make it your own!

Note: Put some gold coins (from the printables) later in the trap to show traces of the leprechaun’s visit! Some parents also love to order chocolate coins to include as a fun treat! 

We'd love to see how you and your family are enjoying our St. Patrick's Day printables. Share your creations with us on social media and tag us @skillmatics for a chance to be featured on our page!
