Simple St. Patrick's Day Ideas Earlier this week I shared some fun St. Patrick’s Day ideas to do with your families on a local show Fresh Living. We always have a lot of fun there! πŸ™‚ For those of you who missed the segment on Monday here is the link to the video: {embarrassed} And my Instagram pic on set. πŸ™‚ These are way easy and inexpensive and things you can put together quickly in time for St. Patrick’s Day coming up.

Mini Pots of Gold!

All you need is some mini flower pots–I found mine 3 for a dollar at the Dollar Tree. Paint them black. Take some pipe cleaners in the rainbow colors and bend them into a rainbow shape and put them into the flower pots. Fill pots with gold candies like Rolos, Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Werther’s, or even some Skittles, etc. For a fun twist I also used black chalkboard spray paint last year and wrote our kids’ names on their own little pots. I hid them around the house and they were so excited to find their own personalized goodies! πŸ™‚

Rainbow Treat Bag w/ tag

I found these colorful treats at the grocery store–they are Airheads Xtremes Rainbow Berry Sour Candy, what a mouthful! πŸ™‚ Less than $1 and you can stick them in a cello bag and top it with a tag! I used a scallop circle punch to cut out the tags.

“LUCKY to have you” 8×10 printable

I thought this would be fun to print out and put in an 8×10 frame, then you can put them in your kids’ rooms and write down things you love about them each day. (Use a bistro chalk marker on the glass, they work better than a dry erase marker.) I like the idea of making our kids feel special and that this doesn’t involve candy! πŸ™‚ Β  [wpdm_file id=2]
