Building traps to catch Lenny the Leprechaun in preschool

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on March 12, 2011

in Holiday Ideas, St. Patrick's Day

The children are preparing traps for Lenny the Leprechaun at our school…

I haven’t ever tried this myself so it was interesting listening to the teachers tell the children about how Lenny the Leprechaun is a trouble maker and causes big messes wherever he goes…



To catch Lenny the Leprechaun, the children have been creating Lenny the Leprechaun traps out of different sized boxes…

The traps need to be green because Lenny likes the color green best…


And for a little bait – the children added some Lucky Charms that lead to a pot of gold…

With all of this hard work, Lenny the Leprechaun is sure to be caught on St. Patrick’s Day but who knows what kinds of trouble he will cause between now and then!

Here are some ideas for making St. Patrick’s day fun…

Make a set of Leprechaun ears from Almost Unschoolers!

Have fun with hand print leprechauns from Meet the Dubiens!
