Simple Leprechaun Bait Recipe With A Free Printable Label

St Patrick’s Day is coming up and if you’ve been here for a while you I love to make the magical part of holidays fun and extra magical. I encourage my children to believe in all the things and to let their imagination run wild. So you know I had to make some fun leprechaun bait for them and share our printable label with you.

Each year for St Patrick’s Day we set up a leprechaun trap to try and catch a leprechaun and with a trap you need bait. So of course w shave to set out bait. But not just around the trap. We have to lure a leprechaun to our home. So that’s when I decided we need something to sprinkle in our yard to get the attention of at least one. We do this for reindeers and the grinch and it’s an absolute blast. I have free printable labels for them too. So check those out too.

To make this leprechaun bait all you need is something that will intrigue them. We all know leprechauns are the banks tellers of the fairy world which is why they are so attracted to gold. And while we don’t want to chance the leprechaun sneaking off with our precious gold we do know that at the end of every rainbow is a pot of gold. So we use “magic rainbow” bait to trick the leprechaun into thinking our home is at the end of the rainbow. Which means there’s a pot of gold close by.

The night before St Patrick’s Day when you have your trap all set up you’ll want to sprinkle this magic rainbow bait all in your front yard so it will glow when the moon is out and trick a leprechaun into thinking he’s found a rainbow.

So if your ready to have fun and make St Patrick’s Day a little extra magical for your littles the. Keep reading for the directions to make your own and then at the bottom of this blog I share how to snag my free printable labels.
