Capture the luck of the Irish with an easy DIY leprechaun trap

Think you're finally going to catch a leprechaun this year? St. Patrick's Day is the perfect holiday for kids to join in on the fun by trying to catch one of those magical little creatures with a festive trap they made themselves.

Cut out an opening out of the top of the box with scissors. Cover the outside of the box with green construction paper. Use clear tape to keep it in place. Don't worry if the tape shows, we will cover that up in the next step.

2. Add the garland
