What’s a few St. Patrick’s day tricks without a couple of treats?! Here are some of my favorite ideas that are easy to pull off and will guarantee smiles from your students.
- Lucky Charms Treats – These are your basic Rice Krispy Treats, but you substitute Lucky Charms in place of the Rice Krispy cereal. You can follow any Rice Krispy treat recipe, my only suggestions are to make sure that the regular marshmallows you melt aren’t too hot this way they won’t melt the marshmallow shapes in your cereal.
- Fruity Pebble Yogurt Parfaits – It doesn’t get easier than layering cereal and yogurt in clear cups. The rainbow colored Fruity Pebbles will pop agains white vanilla yogurt for a treat that little ones can’t resist.
- Rainbow Fruit Salad – Fruit salad is honestly one of my all-time favorite treats. Choose a rainbow of fruit and you’ll have a colorful snack that will make kids and parents happy. I suggest a mix of strawberries, raspberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple, grapes, kiwis, blueberries, and apples. Don’t forget to cut up any possible choking hazards, and this treat is golden!
- Fruit Loops Necklaces – With all of the colored cereals available, you may as well use them! Grab a giant box of Fruit Loops and some string and give the children a fine motor exercise and a snack at the same time. You can encourage patterning while you’re at it.
