If your kids are still desperately missing their Elf on a Shelf, we've got step-by-step directions on how to make a leprechaun trap that will chase those elfin blues away. This trap is easy enough for kids to make on their own (with maybe just a tiny bit of help).
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.
Cover the edges of the box with the St. Patrick's Day garland.
Add decorative stickers and embellishments to the top and sides of the box.
