Catching a Leprechaun

Jonathan was a little cranky yesterday after school, he was tired and has a bit of a cold. So, to relax him a little before bedtime, I told him we were going to try to catch a leprechaun tonight. To do that, we had to build a leprechaun trap. So after dinner, we got to work.

A tissue box, green construction paper, green marker, glue stick and stickers turned into a leprechaun trap! We decided to try to lure him in with Froot Loops and shiny green coins.....leprechauns love shiny things, don't you know. I told him they were wily little creatures, and very hard to catch.

This morning he raced to the kitchen table, only to find one had visited and left footprints, but the little elf had managed to escape!
