St. Patrick’s day is such a fun day for little kiddos! What better way to celebrate then sendng them off to school with some home made snacks for their friends!
I wanted to share a tutorial on a modified version of the Rice Krispy treats with a St. Patrick’s day twist! Basically, you follow the original recipe but add some green food coloring and some Lucky Charm marshmallows! You can download and print the free printable here – all you have to do is print it, put your child’s name on it, cut it, and staple the tag after you make the treat. Enjoy!
