Never in my life had I ever heard the tales of catching a leprechaun until I had kids.

I’m not sure if this is an “Elf on the Shelf” phenomenon, but ever since my kids have been in school, they’ve been fascinated with the notion of catching a leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day.

Since tomorrow is the holiday of Irish love, I wanted to share this super fun…super easy recipe for Leprechaun Bait.

Make this with your kids this evening and don’t forget to set those leprechaun traps tonight!

May the luck of the Irish be with all of you!
