It’s time to celebrate one of my family’s favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day! Every year on this day, my boys and I set a leprechaun trap. We start with a plate of shiny pennies, hoping tiny leprechauns will mistake them for gold! Then we prop a small bucket with a stick over the pennies. Every time we think we might have caught a leprechaun, we lift the bucket, only to discover the pennies are gone and chocolate gold coins are left in their place! Maybe we will have better luck this year. Check out some ideas on how to make your own trap here. Maybe you will have the luck of the Irish on your side!
