Here’s a fairly simple food idea to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Leprechauns love Lucky Charms cereal and gold coins, right? So this is a way those sneaky leprechauns can leave a special treat for your kids. 🙂
I found these black pots like the ones leprechauns hide their gold in at our local Dollar Tree store.
You will also need some Lucky Charms cereal.
And you’ll need some mini Oreo cookies and a can of gold food spray.
Lay some mini Oreo cookies out on a disposable plate. (Lay some newspaper down under the plate to catch the overspray.) Spray one side of the cookies and allow them to dry for the time mentioned on the spray can.
While the cookies are drying, fill the black pots not quite full with the cereal.
When the cookies are dry, turn them over and spray the second side. After the cookies are dry the second time, add a few cookies to each black pot.
And your leprechaun pots are ready to serve to your favorite leprechauns! 😉 You can add to the fun by hiding the pots and letting your little leprechauns search for them. I hope this brings some fun to your St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂
