This craft is super easy and fun! It doesn't require a lot of materials and it challenges kids to be creative. 

What you'll need:
  • Green posterboard or cardstock
  • Assorted paper in various shades of green. A mix of printed and unprinted works best! (Easily found at the dollar store or drugstore around this time of year!)
  • Kid's glue
  • Scissors
  • Begin by cutting the assorted green paper into strips about 1/2 inch wide, then cut into squares. There's no need to be perfect!
  • Cut green posterboard into 3 leaf clover shapes
  • Use glue to attach the assorted green squares onto your clovers!

This popcorn is super festive and definitely an indulgent sweet treat! 

  • 1 full sized bag of microwave popcorn
  • 1 cup of green candy melts
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate candy melts
  • Green sprinkles
  • Green M&Ms
  • Pop the popcorn according to package instructions and remove any unpopped kernels
  • Microwave the green candy for 40 seconds then stir, repeat in 20 second intervals until melted and smooth. (takes 1-2 minutes depending on your microwave)
  • Drizzle the melted green candy over of the bowl of popcorn and toss to coat. Toss the popcorn with hands until well-coated. Spread out onto a large serving platter.
  • Melt the white chocolate melts and drizzle over the platter of popcorn. Top generously with St. Patrick's themed candy sprinkles before the white chocolate sets.
  • Toss on the M&Ms. Allow the Leprechaun Popcorn to cool a few minutes before serving.

This recipe takes a family favorite cereal and makes it into a super yummy snack or dessert! This would be great to bring to a potluck.

  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 16 oz. bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1 box of Lucky Charms cereal 
  • Grease a 9x13 in pan with cooking spray (or two 8x8 inch pans for thicker bars).
  • Melt butter over low heat in a large pot
  • Once butter has melted, stir in salt and mini marshmallows constantly until marshmallows are melted
  • Once the marshmallows have melted, remove from heat and stir in cereal (gently, so you don't crush it!)
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan and gently press in evenly. If you press too hard, you’ll end up with hard marshmallow treats- the goal is to keep as much air in as possible!
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
