What do you do if you set a leprechaun trap, but don’t catch a leprechaun?
You get a leprechaun letter instead of a leprechaun of course!
These free printable leprechaun notes will have your kids smiling from ear to ear instead of feeling disappointed that they didn’t catch a leprechaun.
Making a leprechaun trap is a fun activity for kids of all ages as part of your St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
But those little leprechauns can be sneaky and find their way out which can make a fun St. Patrick’s Day turn into a not-so-happy St. Patrick’s Day.
When I was a preschool teacher, I would leave one of these cute letters to surprise the kids.
Instead of being disappointed that they didn’t catch a leprechaun, they would be excited that the leprechaun left them a note.
Fun Ideas For Using The Leprechaun Letter Free Printables
Leprechaun Trap Letter
Have your kids set their leprechaun trap before going to bed.
Making a leprechaun trap is the perfect way to refine fine motor skills with activities like cutting, coloring, and gluing.
Your kids will also have fun thinking of leprechaun trap ideas of their own if you want to encourage creativity.
They can use pipe cleaners and green construction paper to create the best way to trap a leprechaun.
After the kids are fast asleep, trip the trap as if the leprechaun was there and place a printable leprechaun escape letter inside where the leprechaun would have been stuck.
This is a fun way to surprise kids.
When they see that the trap was tripped they’ll think they caught a leprechaun.
Adding a few chocolate gold coins or their own pot of gold is a great way to make it so much fun for kids.
How special they’ll feel that the leprechaun left them a special letter and treat!
Leprechaun Bait Letter
If you don’t want to go through making a leprechaun trap, you can put out some leprechaun bait.
I have leprechaun bait printable bag toppers and tags that are a free digital download.
The bait can be anything from pots of gold made from dollar store favor pots to a bag of Lucky Charms.
Leave the empty bag for the kids to find along with the free leprechaun trap letter from one of those sneaky leprechauns.
You can also use my leprechaun footprint printables to make leprechaun feet leading from the door to the leprechaun bait.

Make a scavenger hunt for your kids and hide little treats and surprises around the house or classroom for them to find.
