When I was in 2nd grade, my teacher, Mrs. Power had us make leprechaun traps right before St. Patrick's day. Every year after that my sisters and I enjoyed making them. Hopeful we would catch one, usually we only got green milk and a mess!
When I started teaching, I had my kids make them too. We write a first, next, last story to go with our traps. It's a fun thing to do right before spring break and right after our big tests! Here are a few in the making, please excuse the blurry pics, I had a kid take them!
