1. Rainbow Pot of Gold Jello

Last week, we showed you 5 unique St. Paddy’s Day Breakfast ideas for kids. Make this recipe for your kids’ morning snack to keep in theme with the day. Use a chocolate gold coin on top of the whip cream to really pull the snack together. While you’re making the Jello, why not try snack #2 as well….

2. Jello Pot of Gold Snack

All you need for this snack is yellow Jello, a lime and a leprechaun trinket you can find at any dollar store. Hollow out the lime and fill it with cubes of Jello, scatter a few other cubes on the plate (you can even add a few chocolate coins as well) along with the leprechaun and you have a festive, healthy snack for your kids.

After morning snack comes lunch. What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than a do-it-yourself mini shamrock pizza activity for your kids. Simply mold the dough into the shape of a shamrock and let them decorate with green-themed vegetables (green peppers, green onions, broccoli etc.).
