St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun and carefree holiday! Think about it: A day to celebrate for no particular reason with literally ZERO expectations! You can:
- make green food or rainbow treats with some colorful/ green food coloring
- make corned beef and cabbage or beef stew and eat a traditional Irish feast.
- channel your inner “Leprechaun” by doing some fun pranks
- make one or two leprechaun traps (Even my tweens and teens like making their own trap!)
- create an adorable craft
- make Shamrock Floats
- surprise your neighbor by leaving some chocolate coins at their front door
- add some green and gold decorations to your home or office
- simply wear a cute shirt that happens to be green to avoid getting pinched
Whatever you’re in the mood for – big or small or nothing at all – you can do on St. Patrick’s Day!
Today’s idea is a super simple way to kick up your celebrations a tiny little notch without overdoing it or breaking the bank. It’s time to send those you love a little bit of Irish luck with these Pot of Gold Rainbow treats! (Aren’t they darling?!)
These little candy treats make a great party favor, a simple St. Patrick’s Day gift, or something fun for your child’s class.
Little Leprechauns of all ages will love these! Make them for teachers, friends, neighbors, and grandparents, or surprise your kids with a festive after-school treat!
Here is how to make them –

Where can I buy rainbow licorice? Thank you for answer my question.
I bought mine at our local Walmart but you can also get it at Amazon. I added a link to it in the post.
Love this idea! Hope you don’t mind but I shared this to my Facebook Page 🙂 Thanks for joining the Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesday. I can’t wait to see what you share this week!
These are really cute and since I don’t have little ones at home I may have to make a few for myself. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, have a great weekend.

Great idea. I really like those.

Cute and simple, like all the best ideas☺
Super cute idea, thanks!
I'm forever trying to come up with cute gifts for my three boys' teachers, and this is a GREAT one! Thanks for the inspiration.
What a great idea! Gotta make these for St. Patrick's day!
super idea!! I'm off to the dollar store now!
Those are adorable. My granddaughters would have fun making these. ♥
I LOOOOVE this idea! Super cute, easy, and fun! Mmm, loving this.
Very cute, very simple, definitely going in the "to do with the kids" idea list!
I realized after hitting "enter" that my last comment probably didn't make sense. What I should have said was "green M&Ms are supposedly aphrodisiacs and that's probably why they were out for Valentine's Day".
This is a really cute idea for any type of favor–baby shower, wedding, etc.
I'll shut up now.
What a cute idea! The green ones are supposedly "aphrodisiacs". LOL
Cute! Great thinking buying those green mnms after Valentine's day!
What a cute idea! I want to be your kids teacher!
Simply put, you make thoughtful gestures easy and fun to do!
Cute-love this idea for teachers-would be great for Teacher Appreciation Week too-I heard about the green m&m's but forgot to check after Valentine's Day-darn!
Now that's a clever idea, and inexpensive, too!
Such cute gifts for the kids to make… nice idea!
link me up to your party ok…
Awesome idea! I have never thought to look at the wedding supplies at the dollar store! Maybe I need to!
