I love baking special holiday treats for my kiddos. What I don’t love? Having creative ideas that land me 2+ hours cleaning up in the kitchen. (Tell me this has happened to you too. I’ll feel better if it has.) I recently wanted to whip up a fun St. Patrick’s Day treat, and I was thrilled to partner with PAM Cooking Spray to come up with a recipe that was delicious and left me more time to enjoy with my family (vs. standing over the sink).
What did I whip up? The luckiest donuts you ever did see!
These donuts are made with Funfetti cake mix, which means not only were they super simple to mix up, but they are also super fun! (more…)
Ever wondered how to make candy necklaces? The good news is — it’s super simple. The bad news? Well, you’ll probably eat as much as you craft. But hey, we’ll call that a perk.
Gumball necklaces will put a smile on any child’s face − big or small. You can make them in a variety of color combos, making them perfect party favors or special holiday treats. They are simple enough to make with your kiddos and would make a fun birthday party activity. These rainbow gumball necklaces are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
You will need: Ribbon (thinner works better but texture and color will be fine), 5-6 gumballs, Scissors, Tape, Metal skewer
Looking for a fun and simple idea for a festive St. Patrick’s Day breakfast? This idea for fun St. Patrick’s Day food I shared last year (green milk + Lucky Charms), has taken off on Pinterest! I am so tickled that everyone likes my super simple idea that I wanted to share another one with you. It will take you about 3 minutes to make and will put a big smile on your kiddos face.
You will need: A cup, a stir stick, and 6 pieces of Frootloop cereal
It’s as simple as it looks, really.
Make your green milk (just add food coloring), assemble a stir stick with your Frootloops. DONE!
Add a little special touch and print this little guy out to place near the glass. Simply, right click + save to your computer. Then, open in a word doc and print.
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 simpleSt 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?
Today is National Donut Day, and in honor as such a sweet calendar event- I thought I would share some great donut inspiration with you. The next time you are planning a party- consider swapping your traditional cake out and serve donuts instead.
So I was tweeting away last night about making these rainbow cupcakes ….well I wanted to share the finished pictures with you all. We are going to deliver these to our neighbors today wishing them a luck St. Patrick’s Day. If you are looking for a last minute treat– these are simple. I even had everything to make these rainbow cupcakes right in my pantry!
See how bright these are? I used plain white cupcake liners. And made these flags using my computer and a toothpick.
I couldn’t resist a close up!
They look so cheerful all in a row, don’t they?
What about on a tray? I got this great green tray at target for only $2.50, score! Here is a better look:
See, great tray… right?
Need I say more? Make someone lucky today and make these bright cupcakes.
*note: I did not have a box of white cake mix so I used this scratch recipe….really, really easy and taste so much better. I will never go back to the box.
