How to catch a Leprechaun

Every year at this time, my son begins to set up traps around the house to catch a Leprechaun. He is stringing up webs, blankets and nets, checking them every morning to see what he has caught. So far, he has only trapped his parents. “This is the year Mom!” he announced. “I’m going to catch a Leprechaun and take his gold.” This obsession with Leprechauns began in kindergarten, when they had a Leprechaun trap building competition. However, each year his traps have become more elaborate, utilizing his engineering skills. It is fun and gives him a creative outlet. What fun do you have planned for St. Patrick’s Day?
