A Magic Fairy Box
By Rondi Hillstrom Davis and Janell Sewall Oakes

Leprechauns are tiny make-believe fairies from Ireland who, according to legend, have a hidden pot of gold. If caught, a leprechaun can be forced to reveal his treasure, but the captor must keep their eyes on him always. If your eyes leave the leprechaun he will vanish and all hopes of finding his treasure are lost.

Capture your own fairy with a little, magic fairy box.
A small matchbox is the perfect resting place for a fairy. Line it with something comfortable like moss or grass.

Paint your matchbox green and then cover the outside of with flower petals and leaves. We simply attached our petals using double sided tape.

Leave your box partially open and wait for a fairy to come rest. If you're lucky, you may even find some gold. (Mom or dad can help here. My children often found pennies or gold coins tucked in their box the next morning.)
