If your family loves the Christmas tradition of Elf on the Shelf, you may want to consider getting The Lucky Little Leprechaun!
After reading the story “The Lucky Little Leprechaun: : A Saint Patrick’s Day Tradition,” by mother and daughter co-authors Mary Grace, Alexandra, Caroline and Margaret McGettrick, kids can follow the instructions found on an ancient scroll hidden within a stone wall of a medieval Irish castle and build their very own leprechaun trap. The activity is designed to be a fun, educational STEM activity to catch a leprechaun.
The idea for the story and accompanying leprechaun came from the McGettrick family’s own traditions: “While the children loved creating leprechaun traps and enjoyed gifts that leprechauns left behind each year, they were often disappointed that they could not catch a leprechaun of their own. That’s when The Lucky Little Leprechaun idea was born.”
