St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Treats
by: Sweet Threads Clothing Co.
My kiddos are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the naughty little leprechauns…just so they can finally have Lucky Charms cereal. I don’t like the kids to eat a bowl of sugary cereal before they go off to school, so Lucky Charms cereal is an annual treat courtesy of the St. Patrick’s Day leprechauns. However, I so wish I had seen these adorable St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Treats from Sweet Threads Clothing Co. *many* years ago when my boys were littler!
St. Patrick’s Day is full of shamrocks, rainbows and lots of luck! My kids always love any craft that has to do with Froot Loops cereal . I thought it would be cute to use the cereal and actually create edible rainbow treats. It was simple enough for the kids to help put together and a sweet treat for St. Patrick’s Day.
To get started all you need is a package of pipe cleaners, a bag of mini marshmallows and a box of cereal. Pamela of Pamela Smerker Designs also created a printable tag we used to tie onto our little treat bags for our friends. You can get the free download here.
Before placing the marshmallow on the other end, I bent the pipe cleaner to create a rainbow shape. Voila! A perfect little rainbow treat your kids will love!!! The first few I made were gone in seconds….
Taking one pipe cleaner, I added a mini marshmallow to one end and then added the cereal to create a rainbow.
These are such sweet little treats for friends! Both my kids have St. Patrick’s Day parties at school so we made one for each classmate. You can serve them on a white tray or place them in clear treat bags and use one of the favor tags from Pamela Smerker Designs. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
