Leprechaun Trap

...how to trap a Leprechaun...

First we started with some sketches and rough ideas...which led to a boxy cardboard model...

Next we used foam-core for the local craft store, very easy to cut and glue into nice clean shapes. We sketched and used Photoshop to create our stone walls and interior. Lastly we pasted the printed graphics onto the foam-core...

And the final effort looked like this...and we did sort of catch a Leprechaun! We made the outside look like a little Irish Pub.  The top half of the structure falls down to cover the door.

The inside ....the jelly beans are the bait.  When he goes to take the glued down beans the center pole rotates and sets the trigger....down comes the top of the pub and blocks the door!!!

 We even made a model in Alias....to explain the above....

Very fun project...we caught the lep's hat but the rest of him got away!
