Who here is ready for all things GREEN?!?!
St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun and carefree holiday! Seriously, think about it: A day to celebrate for no particular reason that literally has ZERO expectations! You can make fun food, channel your inner “Leprechaun” by doing some fun pranks, OR you can wear green to avoid getting pinched and call it good!
Today’s idea is a super simple way to kick up your celebrations a tiny little notch without over doing it or breaking the bank. Its time to send those you love a little bit of Irish luck with these Pot of Gold Rainbow treats! (Aren’t they darling?!) Make them for teachers, friends, neighbors and grandparents, or surprise your kids with a festive after school treat! Your kids are going to LOVE you!
Here is how to make them –
St Patrick’s Day Gifts
- plastic snack bag
- rainbow licorice
- gold candies, such as Rolos
- Bend your licorice into a rainbow shape on the inside of your bag. (Do me a favor and make sure they are in rainbow order. 🙂 HUGE pet peeve of mine! Hahaha!)
- Put gold candies in the center of your rainbow.
- Tie it up with a bow!
- … and you’re done!
So simple, right?
My kids loved these little treat baggies and they can’t wait to hand them out to family and friends!
