Get Started

  1. Gather your supplies!

Decorate Your Cereal Box & Create a Book Stand

  1. On the right half of the back of the cereal box, cut a rectangle out from top to bottom, leaving a small border around the outside.
  2. Cut each color of construction paper into 1” strips, making sure they are slightly longer than the width of the cereal box. 
  3. Glue rainbow strips to the box. Make sure the strips cover your trap floor. Set aside to dry.
  4. Wrap paper towel roll in construction paper of your choosing. 
  5. Cut slits diagonally in a paper towel roll to hold the book open.
  6. Glue the book-stand to the rainbow side of the box, with the slits facing upward.
  7. Place your book in the stand, opening it to a page that you think will entice Lucky.

Build the Picket Fence

  1. Cut 1 craft stick into two equal parts to create the fence posts. 
  2. Glue 3 full-length craft sticks to the fence posts, equally spacing them from top to bottom.
  3. Build a base for your fence by cutting another craft stick into 4 small pieces and gluing them to the bottom of each fence post.
  4. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to create as many fence segments as you like.

Create the Flower Path

  1. Cut circles of tissue paper in various sizes.
  2. Layer 2-3 pieces of tissue paper.
  3. Place the eraser end of a pencil in the center of the top of the layered tissue paper circles and twist into a flower shape.
  4. Create as many flowers as you’d like and lay two paths in front of your trap as a walkway for Lucky. Don’t forget to sprinkle Lucky Charms marshmallows in your pathway to entice Lucky to read your book and trap him! Good luck!
