If you tend be be slightly craft challenged, like me, then even you can rock these two St.Patrick’s Day Ideas, I promise!
Shamrock Rice Krispie Treats
This is so easy simply add green food coloring to your Rice Krispie treats. Then refrigerate to make them nice and hard. Remove from the fridge and use a shamrock shaped cookie cutter to cut them. Voila Shamrock Shaped Rice Krispie treats. And in case you need the recipe
- 5 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
- 1 bag large marshmallows
- 1 stick of butter
Melt the butter and marshmallows together in a microwave safe bowl, I go 1-2 minutes at at time stopping to stir in between until ready. If you are adding food coloring you add it before the Rice Krispie cereal. Then mix in the Rice Krispie Cereal. Scoop into a greased glass bottom baking dish, I like a 9×13. I use the butter stick wrapper to grease my dish. Let cool and harden, or put in the refrigerator or perfect cutting!
St.Patrick’s Day Rainbow Windsocks
My kids loved this craft and it could not be any easier! All you need are:
- Tissue paper in the colors of the rainbow
- Paper Plate
- Green construction paper
- glue stick
I used my Silhouette SD to cut out the Shamrocks but you can free hand or find a template online easily. Have you child glue the shamrock onto the paper plate. Cut the tissue paper into long streamer type strips. Hand the strips to your child one color at a time and use it as an opportunity to learn colors and talk about the colors in the rainbow. Have your child use a glue stick to hook the streamer on the back side of the plate. We could not find orange tissue paper and of course my girls had to have pink and purple, you can do the colors how you want. My kids loved running through the house listening to the streamers blow or hang them up for a fun St.Patrick’s Day decoration.
