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!

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.

Donuts for Dessert, Brilliant!

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.

From top- left to right: Tray passed mini donuts, a simple stack of sweet potato donuts, homemade donuts via Bakerella, double chocolate donut, create a donut dipping station, glazed honey donut atop a hot white latte.

I also love the idea of serving guest warm donuts near the end of your party. Or even, sending them home as favors. Check out these donut hole bags, they would be prefect.

You can make these yourself. Check out the DIY template from Hello Lucky. You can download here.

Taste the Rainbow: St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

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.

Want a cheerful breakfast too? Check out these rainbow pancakes!

Rainbow Pancakes make for a Cheerful Breakfast

I got so much interest when I posted these on our Facebook wall, that I decided to share them here as well.

Want to make your family smile on a Sunday morning? Serve them up a cheerful breakfast surprise, rainbow pancakes! They are simple to make. Prepare your favorite pancake batter as usual- then divide it amongst separate bowls and add food coloring to each bowl (I used 5 colors here but you could use 6 colors in the rainbow). Then, cook like normal!
