If you don’t catch a leprechaun with your sneaky traps, you’ll be sure to find one sitting on his pot of gold at the end of this rainbow cake! If you don’t find a leprechaun, you might just find ME there! LOL! This is the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, am I right? Or ANY day, as far as I’m concerned! YUMMO!

Now you should be set for when March 17th rolls around. And if you aren’t sure what to wear, follow the Irish tradition! In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day, people traditionally wear a small bunch of shamrocks on their jackets or caps. Children wear orange, white and green badges, and women and girls wear green ribbons in their hair. If you don’t have that, then just wear a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye! Then you might be mistake for a Leprechaun! Happy crafting!

      Our Kindergarten teachers have been doing Leprechaun Traps similar to this for at least 8 years. Both my sons have been so excited when they've caught the leprechaun's shoe, etc. And, both sons have had a leprechaun follow them home on St. Patrick's day and bring them a clover plant! ;^) Last year's clover plant is still alive!

      Love, love, love the leprechaun trap! We did it this year and it's now a household tradition! Another craft we did was a St. Patrick's day hair bow for the girls. I found the idea here: http://www.redtri.com/st-patricks-day-recipe-and-craft-project-from-alexandra-hedin if you want to check it out for next year. It was so easy we made a bunch for the girls to hand out to their classmates!

      The rainbow cake is going to be sure to please. Getting kids to craft things is always a good thing, but I wouldn't have thought of a leprechaun trap. You are giving me all sorts of inspiration to start decorating for the upcoming festivities.
