A Lucky Breakfast

Looking for a little something thoughtful to do for the kiddos on Saint Patrick’s Day? This is what I have planned for my girls – a little simple St Patricks day food! This will be an extra special treat to wake up to because they never get to have “sugary” cereal for breakfast (it’s dessert in our house!).

Glass jars filled with green milk (of course!). Cupcake liners filled with Lucky Charms cereal. On the breakfast tray, I’ve placed a little love note to my two daughters that reads “I’m over the rainbow in love with you girls.” **UPDATED to include printable sign (end of post).

In each jar, a yellow and white striped paper straw.

A close up of the cereal cups and also mini cupcake liners filled with donut holes. What more could a lucky leprechaun ask for?

Many of you wanted to print the sign I created so I have included it here. The original one, plus a couple variations (to fit your needs!). Enjoy :)

Saint Patrick's Day Printable - girls

“girls”

Saint Patrick's Day Printable - you

“you”

Saint Patrick's Day Printable - girls

“We”

Right click & save one of these images. Then just open up in a word doc (or similar program) and print.

    I LOVE this idea! I don’t even have kids, but I’m going to make this for my husband on St. Patrick’s day because we, too, only keep sugary cereal in the house as dessert (hence why we call it “dessert cereal”). It’ll be fun to have some with green milk for breakfast!

    Which cupcake liners did you use? From browsing the site, it looks like I need to get the pick-a-mix. Is that right?

      Hi Adrianne, I just used whatever I had in my kitchen. Just basic cupcake liners ( I doubled them up to make it a bit more sturdy).
