St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching and we have been in full-on Leprechaun mode around here. St. Patty's is one of those holidays that always seems to whiz past before I can really do anything to celebrate, but not this year! Thanks to a little pinspiration, my stepson and I whipped up some Rainbow Jars from Babble.com for his family members and teacher.
While I scrubbed a bunch of jam jars, my little one sorted the Skittles. There were far fewer Skittles post-sort compared to pre-sort. Hmmm... I printed off some cute and free St. Patrick's Day labels from World Labels, spray painted the lids a matte white and slapped the labels on. Quick, easy and delightful!
We also whipped up some Leprechaun Cake which is really just Rice Krispie Cake with Lucky Charms instead of Krispies. I totally thought I had this super cool, original idea but I googled "Lucky Charm Cake". I am not so original. Turns out people have thought of this before. Oh well, the kids had fun and it was delicious. On another note, I can not be trusted around "junk food" cereal. The picture below is the second cake I made after I found my husband chowing down on the last piece I had sitting on the counter, perfectly styled and picture ready. And that's why you always leave a note!
Last but not least we made some lime Jello play dough and threw in a whole bunch of glitter. If you haven't tried making Jello play dough yet, do it! It is really smooth, has a nice scent and keeps forever. I use this recipe and add the glitter right before I cook everything.
Erin go bragh!
