Just in case you think I have been sitting around this evening after our busy day, I thought I'd share with you what I have been doing.
Tomorrow we are taking St. Patrick's Day
treats to school. I decided to try something new, inspired by a post on this blog. l put marshmallows on lollipop sticks and covered them with green sprinkles and let them dry. Dip the marshmallows in water to dampen and then apply sprinkles. Then I used an edible food marker to write the names of Jonathan's classmates on a marshmallow, then made marshmallow bouquets tucked in lollipop bags from Michael's.
Here are all of the treats we are taking to school tomorrow: treat bags for the kids with all green items inside, small green paper bags filled with green & white shred, Andes mints and a lucky coin for the teacher's aides, and for his teacher a small green tin with a shamrock spray on top, also filled with green & white shred, mints and a coin.
Next, I set the table for Jonathan's breakfast with as much green as I could find and a little surprise!
Now I am ready for a bubble bath and a few minutes with a good book!
