My husband has a bit of Irish blood running through him so we like to use St. Patrick’s Day as a way to introduce our kids to their cultural heritage. We have some age-appropriate books that we read about Ireland, have a few conversations about the long trip Irish immigrants made to America, and then finish with an Irish-themed dinner. Of course, since my kids are still young, we add a fair amount of silliness to the day with leprechaun traps and these super fun St. Patrick’s Day rainbow treats!
- Sixlets Candy in:
- Clear Pretzel Rod Bags
- We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool
- Free “St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Seeds” Label
Step 1. Since the pretzel treat bags are rather long, let’s begin by shortening and sealing them with the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool. Just fold one of the bags in half longways and use the cutting tip to score through the middle. The Fuse Tool will both cut and seal at the same time.
Step 2. Fill the resized bag with different colored Sixlets. Don’t worry about placing them all in nice lines like I did in the image below. The Sixlets are going to shift and mix once you lift up the bag anyway.
Step 3. Cut and fill in the Free “St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Seeds” labels.
These St. Patrick’s Day rainbow seeds come together so quickly that you could easily make them for your kids’ classrooms or as little gag gifts for co-workers. How ever you decide to use them, hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
