Leprechaun Trap Flyer


Happy St. Patricks Day

Dear Families,


A leprechaun has been sighted in our school and we would like

to try to capture him.  Leprechauns are tricky creatures, so our traps will need to be clever and creative!  In order to have the best possible chance to catch him, we would like as many people in the school to make their own Leprechaun Trap.The trap can be made from simple household materials like:boxes, plastic jars, bottles, or paper bags.  Construction paper,glitter, and crayons or markers can also be used to help disguise the trap.  Leprechauns are especially attracted to the color green and anything shiny as well!  Remember, leprechauns are stubborn and disobedient, so they will do the opposite of what they are told to do.  If you want a leprechaun to pull on a string or stand in a certain spot you must make a sign telling him to do the exact opposite! Please remember that this is a student project so the majority of the work should be done by him/her, although   supervision would be greatly appreciated!  We promise to share some of the gold with you if we catch the leprechaun! We will be setting up the traps on Friday March 10th, so please make sure the trap is turned into Mrs. O’Leary no later than Thursday, March 9th.  Judging will take place at the family book fair night on Tuesday, March 14th, in the small gym. Winners will be announced during our festivities on March 17th! 

Please direct any questions to Mrs. O’Leary ( or 

Ms. Armstrong(


Thank you!
