Leprechaun Traps for St. Patricks Day

My class has been busy making Leprechaun Traps! I have to admit that we had a blast coming up with ideas and designing our traps. Our school's art teacher even came to help out and was having so much fun she didn't want to leave when it was time for her next class! 

Not only did my kiddos create traps, but they also had to write about why their trap was the best. I teach a combo class this year of 1st and 2nd graders so we are having a writing contest. There will be a winner from each grade for the best and most creative writing. The two winners will receive a chocolate Easter bunny on St. Patrick's Day when I announce it! If you would like to use our special writing paper when your class makes Leprechaun Traps you will find that FREEBIE down below!

Here are the pictures of each trap my kids made. Which ones do you think could catch a leprechaun?

Here is a video of what that Leprechaun did to our traps!!! At least he left us chocolate gold coins!

Here is the video of the children discovering their traps in the morning.
