The kids were persistent and set traps nearly every night the week leading up to St. Patricks day. One night they had this elaborate trap, using string and they had to stay awake and pull it when the leprechaun reached for the coins they had set out. Tyler and I went in that night about a half hour after they were in bed and they were both asleep holding onto the rope.
On a different night they set out a bowl of honey covered by Lucky Charms. Their plan was that when he went to eat the Lucky Charms he would get stuck in the honey. It didn't work and when they woke up the room was all tied up.
