St. Patrick's Day Goodies- Free Printable

It's March! Hopefully that means some warmer weather, sunshine, basketball and maybe a few flowers starting to appear!

St. Patrick's day was always a March highlight when I was in elementary school...before I got in to basketball and preferred March Madness. My elementary and middle school was actually named St. Patrick's so I have many fun memories of parties, dressing up in green, and even some pageants and plays related to St. Patrick's day. I still have nightmares memories of singing this song called Mrs. Murphy's chowder. Our class had to march across the stage holding all of the ingredients for Mrs. Murphy's chowder. I got picked to carry the cream puff. I'm obviously not scarred from this event at all since I remember it in such perfect detail. I know all the words to the song too. I won't sing it for you.

For the kids, I thought I would share some of that St. Patrick's love with their classmates! I even made a fun printable so you can share the luck of the Irish with your kids' classmates too!

Obviously, this isn't quite Valentine's day so I went pretty simple. .

All you need:

  • Lucky charms
  • Clear baggies (I found these at Target in the party favor section but they have them at craft stores too and online)
  • Stock card/printer/free printable You can download and print out your own tags HERE. *This printable is for personal use only.*
  • Stapler

Super quick, pour some cereal in each bag, cut the printables, fold up the top of the bag and staple on the tag. You can write your kids name next to the rainbow.  Lucky coins or other St. Patrick's trinkets would work in the bags too, I was just pressed for time. And I'm getting to the point in my pregnancy where my effort level just plummets. You've been there, you understand, you get the point

 And voila! You have a cute gift bag for your kids' friends in a matter of minutes!

Hope you enjoy! and have a great St. Patrick's Day!
