Are You Feeling Lucky Punk? How To Catch A Leprechaun

I hear it's quite tricky to trap a leprechaun!  They're small, quick and surprisingly clever for the amount of beer they drink.  I figured it was time we gave it a go!



































After much strategizing, we decided that the Sapphire's dollhouse was a great place to set our trap!  Forewarning, as soon as we started into this project, I was flooded with questions from Opal and Sapphire.  What were we planning to do with him when we caught him?  How does he get into our house?  Why does he like green beer?  Of course all of these questions were answered with lies, lies and more lies!   

























We decorated the stairs and hung signs to point him in the "right" direction











































































A trap is nothing unless you set a lil' bait....





































































Well, it looks like we're ready for this little punk's arrival! Until then, we'll be keeping tabs on him via the Leprechaun Watch webcam.
Have you ever tried to trap a leprechaun?  Any tips or suggestions?  What should we do with him once we snag him?

That's so cute! I've never heard of trying to catch a leprechaun. Only tracking Santa and catching reindeer on Christmas! Sound like fun!
