Every year we set up leprechaun traps trying to catch that rascal leprechaun! He creates all kind of mischief - messing up toys, leaving green bagels and a trail of chocolate gold coins behind. Legend says that if you catch the leprechaun, he will lead you to a pot of gold, so we take this VERY seriously!
From the time that my kiddos were little ones, we have celebrated St. Patrick's Day with EVERYTHING green! I blame my mom for this obsession - she went all out for every holiday, but especially for St. Patrick's Day. She'd hide gold chocolate coins on our pillows and always served an all-green dinner.
Through the years I've done the same with my kiddos. Green milk, green mashed potatoes, green pancakes and our favorite Shamrock Shakes - we've enjoyed them all!
This is the BEST Leprechaun Bait we've ever used - Leprechauns find it irresistible!
