As legend says at the end every rainbow there lays a pot of gold. Leprechauns want nothing more than that gold at the end of each rainbow. In order to catch a leprechaun one must lure the leprechaun in by using a rainbow as a trail and gold as the captivating treasure. With a little creativity and whole lot of luck you may just catch yourself a leprechaun.
With St. Patrick’s Day here I thought it would be fun to share the leprechaun trap that my daughter and I made. My daughter, Mackenzie, is three years old is quite excited about the idea of catching a leprechaun. Two days before St. Patrick’s Day she made her very own leprechaun trap. We gathered supplies at a local store and let our imaginations take over.
I hope you were inspired by our #Socal themed trap! I hope you have a shamrocking good time trying to catch yourself a leprechaun. For more St. Patrick’s Day fun head over to our Pinterest Page!

When my daughter asked me “What is St. Patrick’s Day?” I simply replied “A day to wear green and the leprechauns come out” Her question and my poor response sparked my curiosity; I had to investigate the reason behind the holiday. Quickly, I learned that the holiday is so much more than wearing green, eating corned beef and drinking green beer.
According to Wikipedia, “Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick…is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland…Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century…The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland,…and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general…Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks…Christians also attend church services…and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption…” (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, 2016).
This St. Patrick’s Day let us be a part of your celebration of St. Patrick himself. Whether you plan on feasting over corned beef, searching for a four leaf clover or just drinking some green beer, let Royal Restrooms be the “pot” at the end of your rainbow! #TheElegantWayToGo
