Foodie #2 Lucky Charms

Magically Delicious

Looking for something to get the kids excited for St.Pats day this Saturday?   Here are some clever ideas from the Lephrechan himself!

Leprechan Sleepwear The night before St.Patricks Day this year (tomorrow night), be sure to have the kids “get their green on” via pajamas.  Stores like Old Navy and Childrens Place are “good to go” spots to find a set for $5 to $10.

Lephrechan Gold Coins & Gold Dust As shared in your Irish storytime Friday night, Leprechans sometimes leave gold coins from their pot of gold for good sleepers.  Our Leprechan normally sprinkles coins with the childs initials on them from thier bedroom door on down to the breakfast table.  The Leprechan knows we have 4 wee ones, so there is no fighting this way!  He is so smart!

Lephrechan Potty Break While the littles are searching for gold coins, they notice that the toilet water is green?!  Can you believe the Leprechans were really here?   And he did not flush? (1-2 drops of green food coloring works best)

Lucky Charm Cereal Yes, it was magically delicious decades ago and still is!  Great snack coupled with some green milk.

Green Bagels & Green Eggs Your local bagel shop showcases thier Irish spirit with green dyed bagels and green cream cheese- pick up a dozen for a friend Friday-make a Leprechan mysterious drop!

See’s Candy Irish Potatoe  Oh how I love divinty! Not the prettiest of candy….but when you combine See’s famous light and airy divinity, full of white chocolate and loads of California-grown walnuts, you are in for an Irish treat!  It is hand shaped and enrobed in See’s milk chocolate then rolled in a special blend of cinnamon and cocoa powder. The ‘eyes’ of the potato are applied using pine nuts.

McDonalds Shamrock Shake The St. Patrick’s Day promotion is a fun green, minty shake, and has an inspired following—some of us go nuts just trying to locate it. Thanks to, the hunt is a little easier.

Lastly, don’t forget your End of The Rainbow Jello Shooters
