You’re My Pot O’ Gold…

Pot of Gold

Here is a cute idea for St. Patrick’s Day!  My kiddos took these as a treat for their friends at school last year!

I went to the local craft store and bought small clear bags (pretzel rod bags) are what they are for!  I then went to Wal-Mart or Target and found rainbow licorice & Rolo candy (These would also be super cute with chocolate gold coins)!!  I created and printed the tag “You’re my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” on my computer and attached them to the top of the bag when all filled!  Super easy and such a hit!!!!

Lucky Charms Krispy Treats

What a perfect treat for your little leprachauns!  It may not be a big pot of gold at the end of a rainbow…but they sure are a close second!  Lucky Charms is one of those cereals you loved growing up (and if you are like me…still one of your favorites)!  If your kids pick out all the marshmallows out of cereal like mine do…then just add a some ooey gooey melted marshmallows and turn them into a bar..perfect if you ask me!
