How About a Little Magic?
The legend of the leprechauns states that if a decorated treasure box is left empty under the moon, the leprechauns must fill the box with gold, jewels, or gifts.
Try this fun craft activity with your kids! Have your child decorate an empty box with paints, stickers, and other embellishments. Just before bed, help your child place the finished box on a windowsill where the moon will shine on it. Once your child is asleep, the resident leprechaun can fill the box with small treasures, such as foil-covered chocolate coins, costume jewelry, and trinkets.

For Older Kids you may want to hide that box and draw a treasure map with clues to the loot that the Leprechauns dropped.
