Leprechaun Trap Set-Up

Leprechaun Trap 2011 #7

It's that time of year again. That sneaky Spring visit from the naughtiest leprechaun around. However, the kids have been through this for a few years now and are getting savvier in their thinking and trap designing abilities. Aided by a few friends they worked up this slick idea...

Using recycled items (because they had to be "green" - get it?) they designed a "club house" for the leprechaun (and his buddies) to come hang out in. The thought was that they would be so relaxed that they would be lured into one of the traps and stay caught until morning.

There was a little room to "crash" in that revealed a pile of deadly Viking weapons to apparently lop off some leprechaun parts?

There was also a movie theater...not sure where the trap part was there...

A cave for the curious leprechaun to crawl into to investigate but not be able to get out...

A little house with a mail box that was supposed to keep the leprechaun reading his letters until they kids got up and found him.

The zine idea came up yet again and R made a detailed mini (Very mini) zine for the leprechaun to read and get caught up in so much so that he would then fall asleep.

I am not sure where they got this idea. But I had to laugh that they used some of their clothespin dolls as "bait" to draw in the leprechaun. Kind of like undercover policewomen, I guess. Very ingenious but made me wonder if they were watching old episodes of Cagney & Lacey or Policewoman.

It was hard work setting all of these elaborate plans up....we shall see if they yielded any captive leprechauns...
